Japan is known for their different and amazing architecture. Takanobu Kishimoto, architect at the Container Design company wants to move ahead and conceived this spetacular family’s house built from an old carriage in the coastal city of Takasago.
This singular house was named of Platform. The designer intention was to remove the old train carriage from the boundary of the plot to create a larger building area but the item is part of the client’s childhood so he decided to create the project around it.
Takanobu decided to add a long volume with a shed roof adjacent to the carriage. With this idea, the architect managed to create the impression of a train at a station platform. “It looks like it’s going to start moving at any moment”, according to him.
The house has a living space and a bedroom and it has metal’s appointment along the house to create the idea of an industrial design.
A decked patio cut into one side of the building provides separation between the social and the more private areas of the property, but its glazed doors let natural light into both parts of the building.
