Home renovations create private quarters in the home thanks to mA-style Architects. It features a plywood expansion to a traditional-style Japanese home that now has its own private retreat. The new volume primarily made of wood is connected to the original building by a narrow passageway for extra seclusion. The passage cuts through the garden providing easy access to the family, while maintaining a separate space.

This extension really gets you thinking about how privacy is implemented in the home. You don’t have to sacrifice time at work for vacations or hotel getaways when you can have a perfect secluded abode attached to your own house. It allows you to get away from the busy street noise and pesky phone calls after a long day of work. It also gets you thinking about how old and new can complement and enhance each other in architecture.
