Void/間 8

Spaces of stairs in houses connect the spaces of the upper level and the spaces of the lower level, and it bring about spatial changes.

Creating MA space in these vertical moving spaces is another intention in designing ‘House K’.

The space of the stair is a minimal space, and lots of light pour into this space and light from the slit of the stair draw a line.

It is not only a moving space but also a space where one could feel transition of one’s mind. When going up or down the stair one would feel MA and feel relieved with transparency.

One would feel change of mind between the public space of living room in the first floor and the private spaces of individual rooms in the second floor.
