Ao Studio by Tokyo-primarily based studio Keiji Ashizawa Design and style is a renovated apartment for a young functioning couple.
Finished in 2013, it is positioned in in Saitama prefecture, Japan.
Ao Studio by Keiji Ashizawa Design:
“The layout of the apartment reflects the lifestyle of the clients, a pattern-maker and restaurateur, whom each needed specialist spaces to permit them to operate from home. They also desired a relaxed, spacious living area in which they could take pleasure in entertaining pals.
In response to their wants, Keiji Ashizawa Design and style removed all existing internal partitions, revealing a light filled area with several large windows – one connecting to an external balcony almost the size of the apartment itself. An open strategy living room with adjoining studio are at the centre of the new arrangement, with bedroom and bathroom, hidden from sight, within a brightly coloured blue pod – in this sense, the apartment functions much more as an open studio, with value offered to the notion of activity and gathering.
Ao is the Japanese word for the colour ‘Blue’.”
