Examples Of Lounge Design Options

We are currently designing a double story multi-generation house (290m2 floor area) in Northshore where a large family can stay together.

Site Plan

Lower Floor Plan

Upper Floor Plan

Because there is some space available in the red marked area we provide several design options for our client to choose to meet their needs.

OPTION 1 – Tatami Space 

This is our most recommended option.

We put tatami mats on the platform to create the space which add Japanese taste to the lounge to create unique living atmosphere.

The client may want to invite their friends to their home and have Japanese tea on the tatami space.

Also small kids love tatami because it is soft, smells good and feels very nice; an ideal space for them to play.

OPTION 2 – Benchseats

If they regularly invites adult gusts this may be the best option.

The house owner and their guests can stay in the benchseats to enjoy chatting in a relaxed manner.

The kitchen is close so snacks and drinks are easily provided.

OPTION 3 – Large Storage

This option enables it to store a large amount of things.

If the family has various types of hobby that require many tools or equipments, or just have lots of things to store this will be a good option.

OPTION 4 – Common Study

This option will be great for family members to have various activities using a large table together with the other family members such as reading, playing cards, playing computer games, drawing or craft making. This will be a nice place for the mom or dad to help their kids do school assignment.

Which option do you like the most?

Thanks for reading!!

赤色のマークが付いたエリアには少し自由に出来るスペースがありますので、よりお客様のニーズに応える為にデザインオプションを用意しました。

オプション1 – 畳スペース

これはジャパンホームズ一押しのオプションです。

小上がり畳を置き、リビングに和のテイスト加えて、ユニークな雰囲気を作り出します。

例えば、クライアントは自宅に友人を招待し、畳の上で抹茶と和菓子を振る舞い、茶の湯の雰囲気を味わえます。

また、ちいさな子ども達の遊び場としても最適です。柔らかく良い匂いのする畳が、転げまわって遊ぶ子どもを優しく受け止めます。

オプション2 – ソファーベンチ

オーナーが頻繁にゲストを招いておしゃべりを楽しみたい場合、これが最適のオプションかもしれません。

オーナーとゲストは、ベンチシートに座ってゆったりとおしゃべりを楽しむことができます。

キッチンは近くにあり、スナックやドリンクを簡単に用意できます。

オプション3 – 大きなストレージ

このオプションを選ぶと大量の物を保管することができます。

家族に多種の趣味があり、多くの道具や器具が必要な場合や、とにかくものがたくさんある場合には良い選択ですね。

オプション4 – 大きな机と本棚

このオプションは、家族が一緒に読書、トランプ、コンピュータゲーム、ドローイング、工芸など、大きなテーブルを使用してさまざまな活動を行うのに最適です。ママやパパが子供たちの宿題を手助けするにはうってつけの場所ですね。

いかがでしょうか?

I love architecture and design so much that I have been to so many buildings and places around the world such as Sydney Opera House in Sydney, CCTV building in Beijing, Empire State Building in New York, Royal Palace in Bangkok, Houryu-Ji in Nara, etc. However, the residential building attracts me the most. For nearly 10 years I have visited heaps of local and historical homes around New Zealand which I feel the builders’ great workmanship as well as occupants’ life.

From this experience my aim is to design and provide the comfortable and affordable houses with the spirit of Japanese workmanship that people enjoy and improve their quality of life.

In this blog I write my everyday experience of work to show what is a designer’s work and how it goes at Japan Homes.

Any comments or questions are very welcome.
