Modern Home Design Review

Takeshi Hosaka Architects have completed designed a modern house called the RoomRoom in Tokyo, Japan. This living space is designed for deaf parents and two children who are living there. The small main building which is built five years ago became so narrow for dwellers for three generations that they bought a piece of land neighbor to their house to build an annex. The two sides of the premises are facing narrow roads in an overcrowded residential area in Itabashi ward, Tokyo.

At the first floor, this living space is consists of two rooms, one big room in the second floor and the roof. It is two stories with box shape construction with many small openings which measures only 200 mili meters square randomly installed on the walls, floors, and the roofs. These openings on the floor are used as the atriums or as practical openings for the communications between the first and the second floors.

The communication between parents and their children are done through this small opening verbally between the children with hearing capability and communications between their parents without hearing capability and children with hearing capability are done by sign language.

The children sometimes call their parents’ attention by dropping a small minicar. The openings on the walls are useful to take the air and the light from the outside, and they are used as a communication tool between small gardens and indoor in addition. In the same way, the openings between the rooftop and the second floor and between the rooftop and the first floor not only work to take light from outside but also help communication of sign language. And also, the tree set up in the first floor is sticking out to the second floor passing through four or five 200 mm square openings.

From the small openings, it is become conduit for human beings, plant, wind and light and human being communications to extend the inside and the outside of the house in length and breadth in all directions. If we do not have a hearing capability, it is possible to converse with sign language. By sign language, communications are easily pierced through the window which separates the inside and the outside of the living space.

The small 200 mm square openings are installed at various places like the floor, roof, and wall and children with hearing capability, parents without hearing capability look very free and vivid and plants, light and wind are dynamically circulating from inside to outside.
