“House of Slow Life” is located in the city of Kurume land rich nature. Owner wanted to live healthily in nature. Those in planning, was the basis of the concept of this house was to create ties with the residents around the house with people who live in the house. When providing a dance studio in the basement, the floor was the kitchen floor and skip to consider the construction costs.
This staircase is also the chair, made a forum for communication within the family. In addition, the Japanese-style room are linked directly to the outside, enjoy nature outside while staying in the room, space in front of the Japanese-style room as a place where he has established to communicate with friends.
Kitchen and a large terrace deck that leads is the place with the residents of the surrounding community was born as a space that connects the family and neighbors. I planned a house that can live while feeling nature and the majestic feeling of openness that cannot be in a narrow urban feel.
This modern house is completely different from the surrounding buildings and landscape, will be the epicenter of a new life style by the district. I will be the ones to give hope and dreams to the people who wants to build a house and now people living in the city center.Location: Kurume, Fukuoka, Japan Architect: Architect Show Co.,Ltd. | Masahiko Sato Project name: House of slow life
