Freunde von Freunden: Sayori and Toyotsugu Wada


Words

The father/daughter duo of architect and surfer, Toyotsugu, and illustrator and music lover, Sayori Wada, were recently the subjects of a Freunde von Freunden interview profiling their incredible light-filled, beach-inspired home and providing insight into their daily lives. The former certainly seems a lot closer to an idealized surf home than the cramped living spaces the Japanese metropolis is sometimes known for, making for a refreshing glimpse of enviable Tokyo living.

Architectural photographer Florian Holzherr is based in Munich but has done much of his work in the US for Donald Judd and James Turrell. Freunde von Freunden take us inside his garden studio, designed by architect Andreas Meck; the 44-year-old's minimal workspace is filled with natural light and USM furniture, both more than welcome in any studio.

Words

While my own apartment, and overall way of living, couldn't be further from the one on view here, that doesn't stop Arno Brandlhuber's home, office and architectural work from being any less inspiring.
