Private residence, Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan
Yoshiko Shinomura, Yokohama | Koichiro Abe, Sumitomo Ringyo Co.,Ltd.
SOPRANO COLOR II
This private residence in the Japanese metropolis of Yokohama catches the eye from afar. Its slanted roof makes it a prominent feature in the neighbourhood. When she designed her home, Yoshiko Shinomura made a point of using open spaces and large windows to make her residence receptive and welcoming.
The kitchen-cum-living room has a modern fresh colour pop thanks to a light green semi-sheer SOPRANO color curtain fabric. This semi-transparent material invites daylight through large window panes but protects the interior from curious by-passers.
