TOMBO HOUSE

Our client for this house is a professor of business at the University of Kansas. Educated as a cultural anthropologist, her lifelong interest in Japanese culture was evident as the design process unfolded. We were increasingly drawn to the rural tradition of Japanese farmhouses as a source of inspiration. The meeting of the interior and exterior occupies an important part of this tradition, which realizes the marriage of the house and garden. We try to work in a language our clients understand and often draw from their interests to help fuel the design process. We are always taken to the tectonics of architecture, the sensuous qualities of space, light, materiality and the resultant poetics of dwelling.
