N MAEDA ATELIER as Architects

Three lumps scooped out from a rectangular pudding result in the emerging of spatial [recto] and [verso].


[recto] =meaning the air filling the three concavities on the pudding ‘s surface. =it is defined by the surrounding [outer skin visible from the outside = wall] =accommodates room function with public character in close relationship with the outside such as LOUNGE, PARKING, ENTRY.


[verso] =meaning the inside of the scooped-out pudding’s volume =it is defined by the surrounding [outer skin facing the interior = wall] =accommodates room function with personal character in close relationship with the interior such as BEDROOM, STUDY, GARDEN


Communication planned between the air’s [recto] and [verso] that are both products of the [scooping out] creates a twist in their relationship.
