Koya No Sumika house by mA-style Architects

View all 15 Photos

In the purest Japanese expression, the studio of mA-style architects has enhanced the volume of a single peek one story in the coastal city of Yaizu, Japan. The Koya No Sumika house extends to additional living off the main house offering a passage of vitality mixing glass and timber between the narrow gardens of the two builds. Simple the structure as it grounds itself to a white rectangle lifted by a triangular wooden lid. Natural light floods in freely, and the space quickly becomes a haven for peaceful moments each pocket lending way for logical storage.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
