Genesis of the Old Testament begins from the sentence “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaAnd the Creation of seven days is written.(The first day) God made light and darkness. And God called the light. Day, and the darkness he called Night.(The second day) God made sky and made the ground and the sea.(The third day) God produced a plant, a fruit tree, the trees and plants.Save this picture!© Masao Nishikawa(The fourth day) God made the sun, the moon, a star.(The fifth day) God made all creatures which were in the sea and made all birds with a wing.(The sixth day) God created all animals which lived in the ground. And God created a person and created it to a man and woman last  And the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them…Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaLove House is a house for a couple. On a very small site of 33 square meters of frontage 3.3m / 10m deep, I planned a building of frontage 2.7m / about 9m deep. I draw the biggest curve on there with width and depth of a building, I distributed a place of a roof and a place of a sky with the curve、And I planned the stairs which went up from the first floor to the second floor with this curve. The main space of the building which these created, it is it with the space that it “is not indside, and is not the outside”.Save this picture!SectionSunlight shows the change from early morning to the evening very clearly to this space. This space without a lighting equipment turns into space where the light of some candles and the darkness of night live together. On a rainy day, a rainy curtain appears along a curve of a roof. When it rains, it is not always the same sound.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaQuiet rain, intense rain, rain with wind … rain create various sounds. Light of the sun and moonlight play in the Love House, and rain and wind visit Love House, and birds and insects visit a tree and a fruit tree of Love House.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe situations differ every day. We can know that all nature given on the earth is prepared in very small Love House. A couple chose coexistence with all things to visit Love House and they decided not to put television to enjoy this rich space.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaLove House does not separate inside and the outside. I discovered the new space that it “is not inside, and is not outdside”. And Love House was made.Save this picture!First Floor PlanOur sense and instinct may continue still having the thing which the human felt at the time of the Creation. I have a feeling that Love House can remind us of them.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaProject gallerySee allShow lessAIA Report Finds Increasing Acceptance of Carbon Reduction TargetsArchitecture NewsRIBA Launches Centenery Square Regeneration Competition for BirminghamArchitecture News Share Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/560387/love-house-takeshi-hosaka Clipboard CopyAbout this officeTakeshi Hosaka ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesYokohamaHousesJapanPublished on October 26, 2014Cite: “Love House / Takeshi Hosaka” 26 Oct 2014.
