Traditional Japanese house in form of a small vignette.
About this creation
This is a vignette again made for one of numerous competitions in our club "Kockice". The goal in this one was to built an entire house on 8x8 base with maximum extensions to 10x10.
I decided to make a traditional Japanese house. I think it fits in the theme because of the Japanese minimalistic style and using one room for all activities with portable furniture.
On the ground floor is genkan, small area on the same level as the outside where you leave your shoes and kitchen with fish grill, fridge and sink. On the second floor is a small tatami room used both for sleeping at night and everything else during the day. In the corner of a room is a oshiire, space used for storing table, futon and other furniture. Stairs are actually holes in the wall you use to climb up in the room.
You have proven that you can build as well in small scale as you can in gigantic MOCs with this one! Beautiful details in such a small space, the use of the grill pieces on the front porch is my favorite detail.
That is just really creative Matija. Now all we have to do is teach my wife how to live like this we'll be in business. And you know, I can never read "Kockice" without giggling. Is that like when you go ice skating with your zipper open and fall on your stomach one too many times? ~ Chris.
Wow. This is a great creation for so many reasons, from the sheer amount of detail packed in to how you've executed creating the Japanese elements. The ladder/wall to the upper floor is an excellent touch.
