Kichijoji C-House – Chapter 2 – 3D sketches

I love architecture for its way to blend function and art.

One thing that Sakamoto-san gets is that a house needs to be envisioned three dimensionally and with some color.

This is the approach once past the driveway.


This is at the top of the stairs on the second floor towards the entrance of the living room.


This is the view from the study of living, kitchen, dining, and family room.


This is from the family room. My favorite design accent is the crossing beams with the overhang shelves which give a Frank Lloyd Wright feel.


View from the kitchen.


So there are still a million details to cover and we just ended 1 week-end run of showrooms but that will be for another post as I’m exhausted from hours of looking at windows.


  1. You also might be tired as I still have your glasses! Send me your address and I'll takubin them up tomorrow. My address is Nice pictures by the way. We just found another house up on the market. 60 tsubo inside with land of 220 tsubo. All this for 2350 man. Anyway, nice picts.

  2. Been interesting reading your blog. It's much easier to see what is happening with these sketches. How long to build commences then?

  3. The owners have until end of July to move out. With 3 weeks to tear down, to be conservative the building will start in early September.
