From the architect. The project is constructed in typical Tokyo urban condition of closely built surrounding. The 4 story house resolves privacy and light with the design of 2 cascading courtyards which spills gradual light into the innermost volume of the house.

Due to the differing light intensity from the 2 courtyards, each space also differs in character and function.

Very good, but, unfortunately, nothing new.

Jubair Siddeeque · October 01, 2011 09:38 AM

Exactly. for something to be good (or very good as you remarked), it need not be new. There is nothing unfortunate about something good
