Shared House in Oji

王子シェアハウス

Tokyo, Japan
2017.10
Shared Residence
278.94 m2

We renovated a wooden house and garden built in Tokyo before World War II, transforming it into a shared residence for international students.
While preserving the exterior and structure, we redesigned the house to accommodate up to eight people by installing partitions, shoji screens, and lighting. Using washi throughout the house proved an effective way to gently connect all the rooms and spaces.
