A site is a quiet residential street of Tokyo.

A kitchen, a toilet, and a stair are summarized to a center core, and the free plan with excursion nature is developed.

A basic concrete floor, the wall of plywood for structure with oil paint, stairs, etc. are taking out a feeling of a material. Sharp and beautiful space is made from processing the corner of a tree component specially or eliminating various “noises”.

Furthermore, open space is produced by allotting a slight well effectively between the volumes of the second floor occupied in the room.

    I like Archdaily because of the wide variety of interesting projects featured. With such diversity, I don’t expect to like every project shown. But really, why was this house even allowed on this web site?

    I am either “Lost in Translation” when it comes to some architects in Japan or they r “Lost in Inspiration”…for sure one of us has it wrong.

    How are those doors attached to the wall? Can someone explain? thank you.

    This looks like a slum house in South Los Angeles. There is nothing inside or out that makes this worthy of displaying on Arch
