Project Brief

In this design work, “Home” represents the space taking reception for anything. The atmosphere is heart-warming. When lying on the big L-style couch the bathed under the warm sunlight, the family feels the warmth of home.

Project Need

In the living, the tea table figuratively resembling the white pottery is eye-catching. The cat sleeping on the log dining table, the COCKER happily running on the wooden floor, and the flavoring soup on the kitchen stove, these artistically present a part of the lovely home waving lively to everyone in the family.

Design Challenge

To meet the demands for storage reception, the designer decorates the house with a plenty of cabinets. Furthermore, the foyer ceiling and the elevated floor are embedded with storage spaces as well. The dining room and washitsu ornamented with the glass windows and curtains can become the guest room when pulling down the curtains. The hallway, meanwhile, skillfully identifies the distinctions between the public and private space.


The TV wall paved by the two-color honeycomb-style bricks, exclusively with 12 distinguishing bricks, is a surprise deliberately for the client. The hexagon bricks attaches excellently to the wooden floor, on which the life sculpture of rhino is standing with a smiling face. The texture of wooden floors, extensively furnished from the public to the private space, diffuses natural atmosphere.
