for their latest project, 1110 architectural design office has renovated an existing 45 year-old, one-story private house in osaka, japan, to create an office and residence. sandwiched between a park and a field, the project is designed to maximize these respective aspects. the bright park area on the south side comprises of the residential space while the quieter field on the north side is home to the office space.

to soften the contrast between the office and house functions, the design team has placed a large table in the center of the space. by inserting a table with the same material as the boundary between the ‘park side residence’ and the ‘field side office’, the interior reads as one continuous space.

the interior of the house-come-office is characterized by soft, muted tones, such as greys and browns. wood features predominantly throughout the space, from the furniture to the exposed timber roof beams. this natural material creates a warm, welcoming environment that is perfectly befitting for both a home and small office area.

  • Beautiful. I love the coloring. I would calm down in 60 seconds there. Great.
