Recycling at its best: instead of letting an old Japanese farmhouse be destroyed, they dismantled it and moved it to become their new home in another location.
“One day we heard the old farmhouse was about to be destroyed. John and I fell in love with the farmhouse at the first sight. Very spacious, very high ceilings. Very beautiful. It’s just instinct. This aroma of this house was beautiful, smell of earth, smell of wood, smell of smoke a little bit. I smelled life, very healthy life being lived in this space.”
It’s a work in progress
Davina: “I wanted to share a project with you, a short documentary I am working on called MINKA, about a 250-year-old farmhouse in Japan that was restored by an American journalist and his adopted Japanese son. I’m in the midst of raise finishing funds for the film via Kickstarter and am trying to reach as many design lovers as I can. This is the link to my fundraising page.“
What a beautiful but simple story told with such reverence for the history. It really made me feel like I was there, in that home.
Some of you might find it boring or pointless, but just enjoy the cinematography without trying to analyze or dissect it.
