The Pojagi House by MDS Architecture

View all 21 Photos

Expanding on the Japanese tsuzukima (continuous gap) concept of a space overlaid with traditional tatami (straw) mats, MDS architecture utilizes it in creating a spacious environment abundant of light and tranquility. Every side of the home features glass panels and a traditional Japanese black wall facade made from cedar board that’s heat treated to avert insect infestations. The tsuzukima theme is presented throughout the home using pojagi fabrics on the spatial layout around a series of columned walls made from square wooden pillars. The fabrics bring out an enchanting mood of peace creating ephemeral scenes throughout. They also allow heat to radiate into the interiors while preventing cold air to seep in through the windows. Rows of structurally enforced wooden pillars create a boundary between the concrete studio and the high ceiling dining area with a loft space.
