“This residence, consisting of a design office and a master bedroom, is the result of renovating a barn which used to store farming equipment, a barn located in the rural area about an hour’s drive from Tokyo.
The barn with the height of 4 m. was transformed into a loft which had two levels the first for the meeting room and the second for the office.
The lattice windows welcome the trees of the forest into the building, ushering in tranquility. The old doors of the barn have been given a new life to provide an accent for the space.”
