House for INSTALLATION by Jun Murata / JAM

Perched in the corner of an inconspicuous alley in Kashiwara-shi, this two-story building is renovated from a wooden house built in 1976, for an artist as her home and atelier.

Architect Jun Murata has created a functionally and flexible circulation to connect comfortable living space, the space for creation, and the exhibition space of artists’ works.

The main theme of the interior is white blank, including walls, ceiling, storage core, and the rectangular opening which linked the living area with a Japanese-style room.

Inspiration from architect:

It gives the movement and various expressions of life into the white space with the inorganic atmosphere, and makes the space rich. Delicate details with simplicity are highlighting the impression of material which chosen carefully and the expression of light.
