House in Yagi, Hiroshima, Japan by Suppose Design Office | via

On a narrow site Suppose Design Office created the ‘House in Yagi’ which consists almost entirely of concrete. The idea was to have an incomplete/complete form. Unlike other projects, the final stage of construction for this house was not aiming towards a finish stage, but to let the owner experience the sense of completion after living here.

The interior space of the house is designed to maximize the interaction to its surrounding environment. Ground floor material remained the same as the original site, with a single tree standing in the centre to present a natural contrast with the surrounding area.
Windows of the 1st storey are kept open without any window shield or glass and creates an interesting interaction with wind and rain. Through this different interpretation of connecting the exterior and interior space, new ways of living can be explored by the client.

My grandma was a really terrible cook but she could bake. She made angel cake with chocolate glaze that tasted the way playground bark smells, only sweet. And she made lemon cookies that were tangy and had white icing that dripped a little off the edges and while it was thick it also looked gauzy. I asked her for the recipe and she wrote it out for me on the white pad she kept near the phone.

I didn’t see her write it but I recognized the paper, with the red gummy edge on top where it attached. Her writing went uphill. It was in blue Bic and had the squashed loops of the hand I knew from birthday cards and Christmas tags. Iced Lemon Cookies, underlined a couple of times in blue, on the upslope.

"Okoshi-ezu is an ancient and almost forgotten form of Japanese paper architectural modelling, in which construction information is communicated to the craftsman through a model that folds flat. These models can be thought of as a sort of traditional pop-up, being erected and held together using an elaborate system of tabs, hooks and inserts — notes on the drawing indicate materials, dimensions, and textures.

"Okoshi-ezu, which first appeared in sixteenth century Japan, was most often employed for the documentation of teahouses, a highly refined building type which emerged at that time … Teahouses were carefully designed and custom made, and recording such specific design intentions required the development of a new drawing type — the okoshi-ezu. This method of documentation speaks to the level of trust in the craftsman’s skill, but also to the type of buildings that are generated from it. Often these designs reflect a spatial complexity that is subtly resolved in seemingly simple formal elements."
