The Komazawa Park House was created as an extension of a 30 year old dwelling located in the middle of a densely populated area in Japan. The outside doesn’t do the building much justice. You’ll be surprised by the spacious in interior which is flooded with light.

The architects of miCo made it their aim to re-interpret the wooden home so common in Japan, and modify the landscape it sat in. And all that through working with the two-storey structure of the building which already existed.
