Mishima House by Keiji Ashizawa

Mishima House (2010) is a residential home in central Tokyo, recently completed by architect Keiji Ashizawa. What immediately stood out to me with this home is the voluminous structure. Considering the fact that it was built in condensed Tokyo, it’s as if someone inflated a balloon and stuck it in a jar of marbles.
The home is simple, but with adequate attention to detail that keeps your eyes entertained.The architect, who also occasionally dabbles in furniture, designed much of the furniture for this home (such as the pipeknot table), which explains why everything feels so coordinated.
Check out Keiji Ashizawa’s newly updated website where you’ll find this project, and several new projects from 2010.
