japanese architecture firm kurosawa kawaraten has transformed ‘house k’ only by removing its existing color. none of the exterior or interior structure is changed, only a thin coat of white paint is applied to the surface. only by adding white, the form is accentuated; white creates a modern and abstract version of the previous building. the project is a study on the power of color on the surrounding environment.
