Located in Tokyo, Japan, Kre House By No 555 Architectural Design Office. This contemporary minimalistic residence was designed for a sports car enthusiast. The most remarkable requests in the various clients’ demands are “garage space for nine cars”, “the most favorite car in the living room” and “high tree in the living room”. Since all the request is not able to be accommodated on the project site, the building itself was designed as a big “Living Room”. Utilizing the entire basement, nine cars are able to be parked. Lamborghini is my favorite, with a custom-made lift is a lift to the living room floor. When the lift is lowered, making the system closed another movable floor.
Various height and size rooms are floated randomly in the big living space. Structurally, light steel structure boxes are hanged from or attached to the reinforced concrete box. These randomly floating boxes keep adequate distance and height with the car and the high tree and create attractive open space. Spaces under the boxes have invisible borderline and each space has the different functions according to the height.
