Fascinating Origami House with Architectural Comfort Pockets

Architect Yoshiaki Tanaka of TSC Architects used 146 square meters of indoor space to create a home that responds to its owner’s needs. At the same time, the Origami House in Japan’s Mie prefecture is also imagined to withstand wind pressure and earthquakes. Built for a young married couple, the inviting home in an old village surrounded by mountains incorporates the landscape in its architecture. Also, the Japanese culture comes into play when creating the structure. On a compact lot of only 251 square meters, architects imagined this highly modern shape inspired by origami – the art of paper folding. There already was a round stone wall built there by one of the couple’s grandfather, so the new Origami House and all its elements was introduced into this inherited site.

The architect explains how the project came to life: “Therefore I decided to leave the stone wall of the site and, on the foundation stone, hung the roof which I folded like origami and thought about the earth and the form of the house where I could live all in one body.” The origami roof rises like a tent, creating protective spaces that translate into culture-specific mental comfort for the family. Varied functions make this origami-inspired design a valuable concept: “It controls sunlight and takes in wind and, besides, makes half outdoors space. This house creates new scenery while inheriting the memory of the village .”

Charming Modern Home Extension Re-Shaping Socializing Opportunities

Extending a home to fit current needs is not to be taken easily. A modern home extension requires planning for future use and using what already exists to support that. An exemplary proof is Casa ATT by Dionne Arquitectos, a home in Puebla, Mexico, that was re-designed by the architects as a fuller, more nurturing collection of spaces. In their successful effort of renewing the outline of the house, architects integrated the new structure into the familiar floor plan by “generating clear transitional environments discovering visual axes and circulation leading to the new spaces.”

Plenty of socializing areas bring the family together: the new open social space, terrace and guest bedroom complete the necessary space and helps better organize the interiors. In addition, the terrace overlooking the garden connects the original volume with the new additions. In these photos captured by Patrick López Jaimes, the layout looks beautifully put together. From the front, the house looks private and once you step inside, details flood your design-hungry mind. According to the architects, “ATT House is a house in which a clear spatial harmony lives through environments that invite habitation.”

What do you think about this modern home extension? Can this home inspire you to extend your own piece of heaven? mo
