The challenge for Katsutoshi Sasaki was to create a place of residence in a neighborhood of Gifu, Japan that was claustrophobic and allowed little access to natural light and privacy. The resulting project, called HARBOR, is a residence that challenges the crowded residential area and secures access of light and air for its residents while also providing access to the nature.
More photographs and information from this project after the break.
This modest residential house in Gifu, Japan by Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates is built to accomodate the site context and weather conditions to provide a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere in the Ogaki House. The house is designed for a family with four daughters, and is spatially distributed to provide open communication between all members of the household.
