Japanese firm firm mA-style architects has designed this lovely dwelling place that is actually an extension of the main house. The team was able to fulfill the request of their client – a young couple who wanted to be separated from their family but still maintain a sense of comfortable proximity.
Description by mA-style architects :
This is an extension plan for a young couple’s house next to the main house. The main house is a one story Japanese style house with about 200m2, which is commonly seen in rural areas. It is a big house with many rooms and mainly consists of large spaces for people to gather and to provide hospitality. However, the young couple desired feelings of ease and spaces that ensure quiet and comfortable times. A simple extension may enable each of the house’s residents to live completely separated, but the relationship between the families and the connection with the main house might be lost. Therefore, by utilizing the functions for living in the main house, the extension is designed as a minimum living space, and pursues both maintaining distance and retaining fertile relationships.
