Oll+ Interview



Suppose Design Office - House in Takaya, Hiroshima 2011. In one of their latest completed homes, Suppose blurs the line between interior and exterior not with direct exposure to the elements, but rather by bringing the outside in. A long soil pathway with concrete stepping stones meanders through the home, connecting the front entry to the backyard. Unfinished plywood panels surround this central area, emphasizing the natural state of the materials. Living spaces are scattered throughout the volume in boxes that sit slightly higher then the soil, and feature operable walls that either close or open towards the internal yard. It will be interesting to see if plants/grass grow in over time (though it looks mostly sandy), creating an interior strip of nature around which all of the daily activities of the house occur.
