I encourage all of you to watch this video. It will take you on a mind blowing tour of the art pieces in this house. Also understand that the house was a Nazi raid Shelter built in 1942, and was later reconstructed by architect Jens  Casper for a Berlin couple.

House in Yagi, Hiroshima, Japan by Suppose Design Office | via

On a narrow site Suppose Design Office created the ‘House in Yagi’ which consists almost entirely of concrete. The idea was to have an incomplete/complete form. Unlike other projects, the final stage of construction for this house was not aiming towards a finish stage, but to let the owner experience the sense of completion after living here.

The interior space of the house is designed to maximize the interaction to its surrounding environment. Ground floor material remained the same as the original site, with a single tree standing in the centre to present a natural contrast with the surrounding area.
Windows of the 1st storey are kept open without any window shield or glass and creates an interesting interaction with wind and rain. Through this different interpretation of connecting the exterior and interior space, new ways of living can be explored by the client.
