Keiji Ashizawa Design has created an intimate hut-like space in the garden of a three-storey house in a quiet residential area of Tokyo.
The project is an ode to nature in the busy metropolis and stands as a minimal structure comprising four tatami mats and a tokonoma, a Japanese alcove, with a single piece of camphor wood in the shape of a horigotatsu-style table.
Complete with the client's family Buddhist altar and stones once used for weighing down pickles at their home in Kyoto, Garden House is a contemporary take on traditional Japanese aesthetics that allows its owners to feel connected to nature in every way.
