The Modern French Style
Little House

  • Gently fits into the cityscape,
    but still able to catch your attention

    This is such a house we'd like to introduce.

    Even not a Machiya townhouse,
    it is still a small house with a unique charm that worth a glance.

  • While leaving its original vestige,
    we intentionally developed an open space without fittings.

    Different zones are partitioned by curtains with flexibility,
    such as covering the private area when friends come, etc...

    Have you experienced the awkward moment with overmuch space around your bedroom? A peaceful room in a just-right size could be a solution.

    We also keep the lighting plan simple so it's easy to change anytime.

    A few furniture that matches the building well is placed
    and other is left as margin on purpose.

    Let's leave the rest to your imagination!

    This is created with the image of a slightly luxurious life for one person.
    But of course, this would be also a great house for couples.

    ◆”sumica”, is a renovation project that creates a "home" that is neither a property, a piece of work, nor a product. It is produced with the leading role focus on the people who live in there.

    Entrance that greets you by a star

    Etoile, a french word meaning "star". This star-shaped pendant light with a brass frame has been named after it. Let your heart soften by the warm light at the end of the door.

    Kitchen with both appealing looks and functionality

    A cafe-style kitchen with gray tiled walls and iron window frames. Equipped with a touchless faucet, a large-capacity dishwasher, and an artificial marble sink, this is carefully designed with not only an appealing appearance but also attention in functionality.

    LDK where each zone is loosely connected

    Curtains are used to partition zones between the kitchen, dining area and the entrance. Between the living room and the dining area is a waist-high partition wall, where each zone is loosely connected. A Living-Dining-Kitchen area where you can lay back and relax comfortably.

    Northern European×modern French style

    The calm tone wall and the white wainscot give an impression of a Paris condo. An interior designed with a sophisticated atmosphere that matches the Northern European taste. Furniture coordinated according to the space is also included.

    Bathroom and toilet on 2nd floor

    At the back of the bedroom are the bathroom, toilet, powder room and laundry space. You can get dressed by the window in the powder room showered by the morning sun. The equipped "gas-type" tumble dryer that dries your laundry efficiently also helps save your time on doing housework.

    Bedroom separated by curtains

    Curtain is also used to separate the bedroom on the 2nd floor. You can create a workspace next to the bed by closing the curtain, or use it as a spacious room as a whole without partitioning. A space that can be used with flexibility.
