Outline

This house is located in a residential area in Setagaya-ku, Tokyo. The owner requested us not to plan the site full of buildings, and inner spaces aren't perfectly exposed and also closed to the surrounding area. We put two volumes paralelly at an angle with the site's major direction, and hang the top light just between them. The top light is covered with wooden louvers that also serves as the role of a deck terrace. We place trees in six external triangular spaces born in the gap of neighboring land, as to create atmosphere in the woods and reduce the pressure on the surrounding area.
