1-1 Architects has designed a new landscape of rural farmland and residential land, based in Japanese countryside.

In the countryside of Japan, legal farmland and residential land are adjacent to each other and are mixed. The owner of this project also purchased a site consisting of three types of land: "residential land", " farmland (with a road)" and " farmland (without a road)".

At first glance, these lands seem to be one, but there is a strong invisible borderline between neighbouring lands as stipulated by law. By focusing on the borderline of the neighbouring land, we propose a new landscape of rural farmland and residential land. We built separate buildings (houses, agricultural warehouses, greenhouses) .

This project has been longlisted in the rural house category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
