KKC | A house with a golf course by Takuya Tsuchida

Unless your name is Rockefeller, a golf course in your backyard is the stuff dreams are made of. But for the lucky owners of this home designed by Takuya Tsuchida of no.555, an architectural design studio based in Yokohama, hitting the green simply requires that they step out onto their patio. Completed in late 2009, KKC is a private family residence built in Sukagawa City of Fukushima prefecture. The architect, who also hails from Fukushima, decided to lift the main house up on pillars, effectively creating an open communal space for the family members, while also ensuring a certain level of privacy.
Sure, it’s not an 18-hole golf course, simply a mini-putting green for the kids. But I love the idea of using outdoor play space to define the shape of a home.
