47% House by Kochi Architect’s Studio

This minimalist residence was created in 2010 by Kochi Architect’s Studio and is located in Kamakura, Kanagawa, Japan.

The project is named ‘47%’ because the interior floor space makes up 47% of the home’s entire area.

47% House by Kochi Architect’s Studio:

“A house located on the hill in Kamakura JAPAN. I put a large box which contains various of space, a small garden, entrance hall, living space, terrace, and so on.

Interior floor area is 47% compare with the whole floor area of the box. It means that exterior space is larger than interior space.

I expect that the client find the new way of life in exterior space more than interior space. And that will make various of life in the house.”
