The Origami House with a total area of 44.05 m² – the usable floor area of the house is around 26.6 m² – which was erected in Toruń, was created as a result of the owner’s fascination with Japanese culture. The building was designed by architects from the Medusa Group studio: Przemo Łukasik, Łukasz Zagała in cooperation with Katarzyna Chobot, Katarzyna Kruszenko and Konrad Basan.
The house is known among others from the implementation of a modern house in simplicity, which delights with moderation and elegance. The concept was then implemented in all of the areas of the house.
Origami art was the inspiration for creating a simple and restrained house with a geometric form. This seemingly simple building forms a complex arrangement of a steel structure covered with a graphite polyurethane coating.
The adoption of pattern allowed Origami House by Medusa Group to obtain the effect of a visually light form taken from the Japanese art of creating spatial structures made of paper.
Inside, a space for relaxation, isolation, and reflection was also created, which, if necessary, also serves as a guest room.
The interior’s mute effect is enhanced by the Origami House interior finish with bleached plywood – a material associated with the architecture of fusuma wood and paper walls in traditional Japanese homes.
Simply put, the small building is not only a place of relaxation and additional space for guests. An impressive shape with an interesting form also acts as an installation that decorates the space of the home garden.
