Residential Architecture: House in Hamadayama by K+S Architects: “..“Retreat” becomes the keyword..I use the bare concrete wall around to protect the living space from outside environment..I set the Core Tower in the center of the house and I let the living space stream and spatially continue with clinging to the Tower..In the space isolated from the outside world, I try to form the characteristically different space surrounding the Core Tower..Besides it, I make it very open architectonics and the movable partitions enable the whole house to be a one large (connected) room..This also makes you sense and feel the presence of two big tortoises which are the member of the family anywhere in the house..Whereas the house at a glance might give a subtle closed expression in the town, indeed creates a warm and gracious atmosphere at night by a light leaks out from the oval aperture of the aluminum panel..” Privacy, lightwells, filtered natural light, interesting interior volumes..
