British architecture studio T-SA designed Japanese like minimalist house in North London.
"We were asked to explore the possibility of replacing an existing garage at the end of a residential garden with a two or three storey house. The simple brief evolved with the early design process where the primary aim became to create a refuge within the city which would have a tangible calm atmosphere. The actual specifics of the scale and form of this were largely dictated by the physical and legislative constraints of the site. Beyond this the brief was not about programming specific functions of space rather it was definitions of the quality of spaces the client wanted to create with us."
