Tokyo House – Yo Yamagata Architects

This Tokyo house definitely has a unique feel to it.   Architect Yo Yamagata found a creative solution for a home in a crowded residential neighborhood with height restrictions and impaired views.  The house succeeds in providing light and privacy with the use of courtyards and skylights.  Windows that let in the sun but do not have a direct sight to the neighboring house and the upward flow of the house allows a feeling of volume on this 660 sqft footprint.

The house is a live work space and has many different levels with open floor plans flowing into one another, almost every room on a different level.  Which is good for keeping in shape.   The outside walls taper in from the top and the inverted V cut out create a point of interest for the entrance, especially when illuminated in the dark.
Have an infinitely modern day.

  1. I find intriguing the way the space is organized and how the light helps to define each space.
    I find the glass box particularly amazing!

    Thanks for sharing it.

    Ciao.
