Keyhole House in Kyoto, Japan

La fachada de esta casa tiene la forma del ojo de una cerradura y su techo tiene forma triangular. Se trata de una pequeña casa para cuatro personas y dos gatos en Kyoto, Japón, de tan solo 100 metros cuadrados, ubicada de forma aislada en la esquina de un pequeño estacionamiento.

The facade of this house has the shape of a keyhole.
A key to open “my house”, which is standing along a narrow street of a crowded town, is designed as a key itself on the façade of this house. A house can be called a key, which will open up your life happily. Such a small key, this house is a key!

The site is in Kyoto, Japan. It is a small house for four people and two cats. It has only 100 square meters of floor space.  It is standing alone in the corner of a small parking lot like a table left behind at the seaside.

・The façade is marked by a window shaped like a key.
・Mortar with sumi ink is applied to the exterior wall.
・Simple color coding. Red and purple are used as an accent.
・The triangle roof.
・Random arrangement of small windows.
・The edge to make the shape of this house clearer.

There is a thin steel eave which is fixed to the façade of this house as if it is floating, and a key-shaped slit like a “picture”, crossing over the eave. A red wine-colored door. These are laid out like a beautiful pattern designed on a jewel box.

You sometimes will see a cat lying by the window at this house. You wonder what she is watching. Do you still have a naive heart with a key to open this house?
