Garden Tree House by Hironaka Ogawa & Associates



Location: Kagawa, Japan

 is a minimal home located in Kagawa, Japan, designed by . This project was for an renovation on a home residing a young couple. The original home was built thirty-five years prior, and have a Azelkova tree and a Camphor tree within the site.

Once the architect finally arrived at the site, all of his previous thoughts on how to design the home were gone. He understood the importance of these trees and how they overlooked a family and its home for over thirty-five years. Therefore, utilizing these trees and creating a new place for the client became the main theme for the design.
