T House is the combination of sophisticated elegance of an eighteenth century loft in Milan and depth of a Japanese house. Developed by Takane Ezoe and Modourbano born from the needs of client, an artist that prefers free spaces, rooms without a real dividing line between the public and the private. The studio has very specific characteristics: large, bright, comfortable, with the ability to hold meetings with employees and where the artist can move easily between works of great size, but at the same time simple and neutral where you can work without external contamination.
The kitchen is central, where the owner can prepare meals for a large number of on social occasions, dominates the house. The functional layout refers to the traditional Japanese buildings where everything is “semi-open” and the spaces are divided with the traditional sliding doors fussuma or syouji, hence the idea of having open spaces and large planimetrically double heights to emphasize the peculiarity of this space in Milan of the eighteenth century, formerly a horse stable. In all the design choices, there was the desire to preserve and enhance the distinctive character of the original building, the stone fragments, the arches of the large windows and large wooden beam of gallery.
