I recently posted about the Life in Spiral house by Hideaki Takayangi on HomeDSGN. And I just can't seem to get it out of my head. So I thought I'd share some images of it here today. It's been a while since I featured a home anyway, and this one makes me feel so calm and happy.
I would always choose a long flat house versus a tall one. Two stories is actually perfect for me, that way I could at least have a staircase (you all know how much I love stairs, right?). But even still, I appreciate the way the narrowness of the site (not uncommon for Tokyo) influenced and shaped the design of this house. Even squeezed in there, it feels grand! I'm also not a huge fan of vertical blinds, but somehow, in this case, the lines created by the blinds look delicate. When fully open and pulled back, they blend into the window frames.
Concrete, glass, white, wood, minimalist and bright - if that's your thing, then we are both smiling right now. Yes?
