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.

Suppose Design Office - House in Fukawa, Hiroshima 2010. Housing a larger extended family of six in a somewhat dense area with a lot of pedestrian traffic, being able to acheive a higher level of privacy was an objective of the project. A asymmetrical plywood tower was designed into the shell of the house, branching off at different angles to accommodate sleeping quarters. The “leftover” space becomes a more public realm, creating internal terraces and balconies, allowing for communication between occupants through all levels. Operable windows in the bedroom create a further connection between the public and private zones, and a large entry door opens the space onto the street, allowing residents to interact directly with the adjacent streetlife.
