House in Hamadera / Coo Planning

Kiyoshi Nakao of Coo Planning designed an apartment for four in Osaka Prefecture Sakai City. The cilents expressed the need for booksheleves to fit their expansive book collection. Quite different from a traditional house interior, this building is clad in wood from floor to ceiling to try and provide a “warm, lofty feeling.”
