In response to an international design-build competition, our team proposed a quintessentially Californian approach embracing many ideas still new to Asia, from where most of us hail. These Californian ideas formed into Nest we Grow, which grew from a shared interest in the materials that make up our build environment with a focus on renewable materials. Nest We Grow won the 4th Annual LIXIL International design-build competition in 2014, and unlike structures built in the first years of the competition, it is an open, public structure. Its main intent is to bring people in the community together to store, prepare and enjoy local foods in the setting of Hokkaido, Japan.

The planning regulations require the creation a free, unbuilt space within the plot. This premise led us to believe that the most suitable design for the morphology of the plot, which was quite rectangular, was a courtyard at the back of the plot. Thus, the building is inserted between two living spaces: one outside, which is the street, and one more intimate, which is the courtyard.
