Cocoon, designed for jewelry designer, is located at tricky pentagon’s shape of site. Because this site is in residential area, we need to carefully deal with relationship with street, so we started to design wood clusters like "cocoon" to control privacy, but make it outstanding for jewelry atelier. In addition, we made slit between atelier and house like courtyard to get light and vent air for both. The angle of 45 degree, naturally derived from the site shape, creates interesting feeling in each room. For the client who wanted to live simply and beautifully, interior is produced by squeezed light and stately materials, while eliminating ornamental decoration as much as possible. We hope that it will become a house with attachment through a time long.
