The project is in the Suginami residential area of Tokyo and is a private home renovation. The original function was both a store and a residence, but due to the owner’s age, he retired from running a store, and the residential part would be expanded, requiring more of a quiet retirement living space. So, we opened up the original store room and connected the living room and dining room into a large, spacious and airy space. The floor and ceiling are both made of wood elements, but the direction of the flooring is perpendicular to each other, creating a quiet and moderately varied home space, adding vitality and interest to the space.
