Name: Hanafarm Kitchen
Location: Saitama, Japan
Hanafarm Kitchen is a minimal farm located in Saitama, Japan, designed by StudioGreenBlue. The owner and his family grow vegetables there with particular consideration on taste, breed, and cultivation method. Specifically, five “boxes” are made in the seating area. Each “box” has directionality and space between each other. The middle of the “box” is lifted to “change the expanse” both inside and outside of the space.
The “boxes” are louvered to reduce their profile, except for the entrance and counter seats. The neighboring louvers are displaced with different gap intervals. This results in overlapping of various movements of people inside and creates variations in “connection” and “depth” of the space.
