闰间设计 | 一切由一幅画开始-日本樱熙居
一切由一幅画开始 It began with one painting
This traditional Japanese style painting is called "Yozakura Gekka" (by Hiroshi Senju),featuring an exquisite weeping cherry tree in blossom lit by the moon light.
It was for this painting that the owner wished to have a private space to admire – where he could spend his time quietly and feel the beauty of falling petals.He wanted to create simple but elegant atmosphere like luxurious hotel for his living room/study and bedroom.
The building was a one-story wooden structure of 66 square meters that was build more than 40 years ago.Upon this renovation,the original main structure was kept unchanged but the west side of the house was made into a large spacious single room containing the living room/ study and the bedroom area.Storage unit between those two areas separates the room but does not close off the space,leaving openness.Kitchen and a bathroom are placed in the east side.
To incorporate the owner's love for the painting and cherry blossoms,the concept for this project was proposed that the painting was to become the center of the house,rather than creating a space to exhibit it.
四季 Four Seasons
As "Yozakura Gekka" symbolizes Spring,the nature and its four seasons were introduced into the design.Summer is represented in "Asanoha Monyou (hemp leaf pattern)" on the three-parted sliding doors.The sunlight from the south side would be softened by the hand-crafted Yoshino Washi-paper that lined the inside of glass doors,leaving the pattern to emerge.
Autumn is pictured in the elegantly lacquered panel of the Byakudan finish,with "Momiji Monyou (maple leaf pattern)" in scarlet and gold.Winter is expressed in "Shiki-Matsuba Monyou (pine-needle covering pattern)" that was woven into the Nishizin silk covered the curved ceiling.Cherry buds would awake in winter and endure the cold until the spring blossom time.To complement the beauty of Yozakura Gekka,the winter essence was essential to the place.
"Kawari-Kanzesui Monyou (flowing pattern with swirls)" on the sliding Karakami-paper door represents water,suggesting bathroom facilities laid behind.Additionally,hinoki cypress was used for newly designed furniture as well as the interior,which would give refined impression with its delicate wood texture and the natural finish.Combined with the Botticino Classico (Italian) marble stones covered the floor,the place would give the impression of the modern incorporated with the traditional Japanese style.
