リビングにはテラスまで続く簡易的なキッチンカウンター 、ソファベンチを設けることで内と外をつなげ、人の意識を中庭へと広げ心地よい時間の流れを感じる場となった。


A plan to renovate an 80-year-old Japanese house.
The existing condition was repeatedly expanded and renovated as the residents changed, and the interior and exterior and sashes that were given without a sense of unity according to the times and the tastes of the residents at that time lost the goodness of Japanese houses.

Under such circumstances, there was a need for a space where people could gather comfortably, taking advantage of the existing situation, and having a view of the garden.

The outer wall on the garden side and the sash were dismantled. The space that was originally a broad veranda lines was changed to the veranda, and open lead-in windows were installed in all rooms.
We aimed to create a space where you can feel a sense of unity and openness with the courtyard from all the rooms.In addition, the veranda is connected to the living room, Japanese-style room, and bedroom from the outside to create a flow line, creating a new layout with ease of migration.

In the living room, a simple kitchen counter leading to the terrace and a sofa bench were installed to connect the inside and the outside, spreading people's consciousness to the courtyard and feeling a comfortable flow of time.

Taking advantage of the pillars and beams that came out during the dismantling of the interior and exterior that were added in the extension and renovation, we chose mortar and plaster for the materials such as floors and walls, which have relatively few claims in space.The texture of the mortar and the existing pillars and beams gives a glimpse of the contrast of time, creating a high-quality and comfortable space.
