Nendo renovated an olf wooden house on the Shibuya River in Tokyo into a live-work space.
The house had accumulated some strange and wonderful features, like an inner courtyard, an oddly long hallway and a tiny room, from a series of earlier renovations. The hallway became a study, and the small Japanese-style room a studio.
Veins of moss pattern were used on the interior walls to connect existing spaces with newly-renovated ones. The same pattern appears on the cable outlet, and on the doorframes and door handles of the office.
