House in Gotanda

Shinagawa, Tokyo, Japan
Suppose Design Office
Kenta Hasegawa

Located in Tokyo's Shinagawa ward sits a low minimalist concrete dwelling that feels more like a bunker at first glance. Yet it's actually a multi-storey residence that centres around the kitchen and dining area with an open-plan programme. Designed by Japanese architecture firm Suppose Design Office, House in Gotanda's space changes its expression every time natural light interacts with it, creating shades and shadows throughout the entire house. There is a beautiful contrast of materials where concrete is complimented by natural wood flooring and furnishings courtesy of E&Y and subtle lighting design by Modulex. The house feels more like a space of tranquility and simple living rather than refuge.
