A Little House of Decks
This sweet and youthful little house by Japanese architecture firm Takeshi Hosaka Architects appears to be nothing more than a set of children’s white blocks simply placed one on top of the other.
Huge easy sliding walls of glass gleefully expose each floor to plenty of fresh air.
The airy stairways intersect the spaces like more of the white railings that edge the decks.
The spindly white chairs echo the motif, offset by naturally weathered wood on the decks.
The plain wholesome oak table for setting down and taking a meal is just right. As are these simple open white shelves that let you just see what to cook in the simple zen kitchen.
The entire house has a charming youthfulness to it.
It is the perfect first house for a young and energetic couple. Look at all the climbing that must be accomplished between almost every room!
But what is at the bottom? The disparate styles of the stair, the rounded door and the frumpy curtain just do not work and add nothing to the house.
I almost left this last picture out. It just ruins the excellent design coherence of the rest of the house.
But perhaps if the curtain was a bold blue and the round door was a kids block red, this would make more sense in this house. Your thoughts – how would you fix this?
