2001 revives house in Bandoubashi, an abandoned property in Japan

2001 —a Tokyo based architecture studio—has taken on a renovation project of a house for rent in Yokohama, Japan.

With the help of fellow architect and designer Niek Wagemans, who also created a furniture piece for the property (part of his series ‘confused furniture’), Bruggink set about building House of Rolf from a rough scale model, developing and amending the design as the construction phase progressed.
