House in Yoro by Airhouse Design Office
Happy Tuesday! Check out this amazing house located in Yoro, a small town in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. One of the client’s major requirements was for a living space where the presence of the family would always be felt. In response, the architect devised a single-roomed layout without columns that took advantage of the distinctive features of the existing warehouse. A large kitchen was installed to cater to the needs of the food-loving husband-and-wife couple.
The architect then conceived the entire living space by taking the kitchen as a focal point, with a mix of various other activities and functions unfolding around it. Within this single-roomed space, they also created a box-like structure with a loft bedroom for the children on top of it, and private quarters including a bedroom and bathroom inside it.
