The September issue of Modern Living magazine (Hearst Fujingaho Co., Ltd.) features Hiroko Koshino’s new home extension in Rokko, Hyogo, where she displays her new collection of paintings. The article shows her lifestyle in Rokko where nature, art and sophisticated design coexist.
We would like to announce that the house of Hiroko Koshino in Okuike-cho, Ashiya-shi is turned
into a gallery to be opened to the public.
The residence of Koshino has designed by Tadao Ando and remodeled and expanded since 1981.
This building turns over new space just like a museum, so people can be relaxed and spend time
enjoying the art works of Hiroko Koshino.
The strong contrast between the bare concrete wall and the paintings by Koshino changes with
time by natural light. People’ s eyes will be fixed upon it.
The abundant nature from the large windows is the source of creations of Hiroko Koshino who is
sure to come back here every weekend to make arts heartily.
Because the gallery is in the quiet neighborhood in a national park, entrance is by advance
reservation for the present out of consideration to surrounding environment.
It will be our pleasure to welcome many visitors to this new gallery.
