Nestled comfortably in the Fukuoka prefecture region of Japan lies the Yamaguchi Sake Brewery, which underwent a partial makeover to better connect the establishment’s two main structures. Architecture firm CASE-REAL was tasked to find a more conducive means in which to use the courtyard sandwiched in between the main building and the adjacent warehouse.

A design plan was put into motion, resulting in a tranquil common area, complete with a finished cement floor and staircase. A row of trees adds a serene environmental touch to the stone and wooden-laden space, while the central opening to the house was restructured in such a way that helps foster a closer connection between both buildings. The interiors, for the most part, remain unscathed, doing well to showcase the property’s open space and minimalist decor.
