The clients for this project needed more space to accommodate the needs of a growing family, but they were reluctant to leave their location in Venice – one of the few walkable neighborhoods in Los Angeles.  The solution was to maintain and remodel their existing 2000 square foot home, while creating a 1700 square foot addition and courtyard on the rear lane side.

Typical Tokyo urban condition of closely built surrounding.  The 4 storey house resolves privacy and light by the idea of 2 cascading courtyards, which spills gradual light into the innermost volume of the house. Due to the differing light intensity from the 2 courtyards, each space also differs in character and function.

‘Chapel’ Student Workshop Description:

This project was built as part of the student event MEDS, Meeting of European Design Students, during a two week period in August 2011 by a team of 18 students. This team was led by tutors Kieran Donnellan, Darragh Breathnach and Paul O’Brien. The concept for the pavilion involved the exploration of spatial concepts relating to religious typologies from the Western and Eastern cultures that have shaped Istanbul. This was in response to the event theme of ‘Bridging Cultures’. The name of the project is inspired by its origins in religious typologies, but the intention was simply to create a space that offers repose.
