Tranquil House By FORM/KOUICHI Kimura Architects


The Tranquil House was built next to a busy roadway in Shiga, Japan, using a series of tiered concrete facades that create an intimate space which is able to avoid any outside influence or noise. A pronounced entryway is featured in the home’s central recess, leading visitors toward the living and dining area of the home. The Tranquil House features a voluminous layout, complete with extended hallways, vertically-reaching dividers, and differentiating levels throughout each room.

The walls are perfectly angular and they create an immaculate shadowing during specific times of the day, based on the outside light, allowing light to bounce and play between columns, which is able to create the illusion of spatial depth. Talking about true craftsmanship.

The modern furniture alongside the minimalist design elements are creating a mesmerizing familial space dressed in black and gray, while cold, muted tones emerge from the home’s plethora of ceramic and concrete overlays.
