  • House of Scenes is a minimalist architecture project located in Shiga, Japan, designed by FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects. The site is located in a zoned residential area which is a little bit away from the bustling main street. The client wished to have a comfortable house where she could hold a private Yoga class. To meet that request, linkage between exterior and interior spaces were identified to realize a living space that expands toward outside in terms of visual and sensory aspects. When opening the entrance door of the symmetrically designed building, a courtyard surrounding the living room stretches right in front. The living room that also serves as the Yoga classroom has two openings; it can be used as one unified space together with the courtyard when the sliding doors are wide opened. The terrace continued from the living room is used for Yoga lessons.
