Tour a Warm Modern Home Inspired by Family Bonds and Anime Film
Architect Clinton Cole had been watching a lot of Japanese animation films with his kids when a couple approached him for help renovating their home. Cole observed how much the couple, who work from home, loved spending time playing, studying and eating together with their children. “They have a very, very strong bond,” Cole says.
And that brought to mind the anime film My Neighbor Totoro. Its themes of family relationships, friendships and nature seemed to especially encapsulate the feeling the couple were going for in their home. Cole channeled that into a bright and open modern family home with an indoor-outdoor floor plan that encourages playful family togetherness.
