A house and a gallery.Architecture
"The client requested to have a space that can be used as a gallery in the house in addition to the habitable space," explained the architects. "The request triggered the creation of characteristic spaces within the building."
This Japanese family home by FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects is arranged as a series of framed spaces, with the ground floor dominated by an art gallery and workspace. Occupying a corner site in a residential area of Japan's Shiga prefecture, the 128-square-metre house was built with a wooden frame.
