GENETO have designed a private house in the quiet neighborhood in Tokyo. Called DG-House, a space economically and functionally with the work of more than furniture less than architecture. The exterior space and the interior space are tended to be humble because usually we focus how much space and how much floor-area we can get especially in densely built-up area.
Some private rooms are in the ground floor and the second floor is made as one big room and it makes “the scenes of daily life” be fulfilled by dividing each space with furniture.
The volume is made with the sequence of organic shape 24mm plywood frame. And the structure consists of fitting in the surface material plywood. The volume is made by the method like the middle of how to make furniture with how to make architectural. This method makes it possible to make architectural scale economically, keeping the scale of furniture.
Also the volume of children room works as the structure to support the architectural horizontal force when putting it in the second floor. It is seen one mass by painting black on structural plywood when seeing a whole, keeping the feeling of wood when seeing in the vicinity.
