’2004’ house by Hideyuki Nakayama
When Hideyuki Nakayama first sits down to dream up a design, he takes a pencil to paper and starts sketching.
With a single line, a blank sheet of paper becomes a spacious floor. He adds another line, erases a dash here and there and the space transforms in the blink of an eye.
For "2004," a private residence amid a new residential development in Matsumoto, Japan, Nakayama started off with sketches of a girl sleeping on a blanket with a floor hovering above her. What began as an exercise in exploring spatial relationships through rudimentary sketches spiraled into a home that breaks with convention. Here, we take a look at this delightfully unconventional project.
