Wonderful Remodeling of a House with the Comfort and Enjoyment of the Family in Mind
By Magaly • Dec 29, 2017
Hiroto Suzuki Architects and Associates have designed this private residence in Wakabayashi Ward, the eastern ward of the city Sendai, in Miyagi Prefecture, in Japan. The home covers a ground area of just under 87 square meters, and was completed in 2017.
The property is surrounded by densely-built low rise homes, as it stands smack in the middle of a residential area in Wakabayashi Ward. Old houses, relatively recently rebuilt, are scattered in the surrounding areas, creating a mixture of old and new properties in the environs of this private residence.
The old home was renovated for a young family consisting of a parent and a single child, and it represents a new addition into this community. In order to successfully achieve this, Hiroto Suzuki Architects sought to create a connection between the private and public areas so that they could easily communicate with the outside world of the surrounding neighborhood.
A three story building was planned, with a two car parking area and gardens. The living and dining rooms, as well as the kitchen, are located on the second floor, creating a common room that both the residents as well as the family guests could enjoy.
