Hinge House is located in a good and quiet residential neighborhood, where issues of aging arise. As there were few shops under the strict regulation, fewer people stay at home on weekdays. We, therefore, created large liberated space in Hinge House. Our clients enjoy playing and listening to music there and will get together with friends, relatives, and neighbors. They also have the option to rent bedrooms as short-term lodging like Airbnb. Neighbors and clients can feel the presence of each other in the daytime, and lattice works can be closed at night like a shop or a cafe. To construct the large space easily, we connected roof beams with hinges at a pre-cut factory in advance and craned them on site. It looked as if it were a small festival.
