Garden Tree House by Hironaka Ogawa & Associates
Happy Saturday! Check out this amazig house located in Kagawa, Japan. This is an extension project on a thirty-five year-old house for a daughter and her husband.
Azelkova tree and a Camphor tree stood on the site since the time the main house was build thirty-five years ago. Removing these trees was one of the design requirements because the new additional building could not be built if these trees remained.
When the architect received the offer for the project, they thought of various designs before they visited the site for the first time. However, all their thoughts were blown away as soon as they saw the site in person.
The two trees stood there quite strongly. They listen to the stories in detail; the daughter has memories of climbing these trees when she was little.
These trees looked over the family for thirty-five years. They colored the gardenand grew up with the family. Therefore, utilizing these trees and creating a new place for the client became the main theme for the design.
