New Floor Plan
Original Floor Plan
Here’s a project description from Keiichi Kiriyama:
House in Jiyugaoka
This project is a renovation of a 40-year-old reinforced concrete apartment. The spaces of the house were designed from a viewpoint of “storing clothes”. It was said that the client has a passion for fashion and loves trying on clothes or displaying newly bought clothes. The client requested a large-sized closet space.
However, we thought it was a shame to completely hide away the precious clothes. Therefore, a large closet space, called a dress room, was made in the centre of the plan. The room functions as a passage as well as a display storage and a hide-away storage, and the space continuously changes depending on the situation or season.
By doing so, fashion blends into life, and I believe that the space becomes a place to change the client’s mood whenever it is passed by. This renovation project was done by constructing spaces through re-examination of the conventional ideas of clothing storage.
