concept
The site is on the suburbs of Himeji City, and the building is adjacent to the owner's residence.
“Enjoying the stored paintings in daily life” is the heart of the concept from the beginning.
This museum is not open to the public.
This museum is for small groups such as the owner and his family, acquaintances of the owner, and buyers.
The building is planned taking advantage of the characteristics of the L-shaped deformation area facing the intersection.
The exterior of the museum has no windows and only a few horizontal slits.
Some glass blocks are provided on the indoor floor, reflected light from the floor is put in the room.
These are to make the illumination distribution uniform in the day time.
The paintings on display are only Indian modern art.
You can enjoy the exhibition while moving the space to the 1st floor, the 2nd floor, and the 2nd floor in a spiral shape.
