House In Amagi


House In Amagi is a single family detached home, recently completed by Atelier Cube in Fukuoka, Japan. The inspiration for the interior came from the outside. The house is surrounded by several cherry trees, and the owner wanted an atmosphere which encouraged enjoyment of these garden elements from each room inside the dwelling. The layout of the house looks unsystematic, allowing floor-through view of the entire place from nearly every angle.

I love the multilevel floor arrangement, which separates the otherwise open space into functional areas. It also adds depths and makes the house to appear bigger. Another beautiful touch is an addition of the rectangular "windows" inside the partitions between the rooms. These voids also provide suport for shelves, that can hold plants or double as impromptu seating.
