Placed at an 43 sqm site in urban district of Osaka, the House in Tamatsu is a three-storey residence designed for a family of four with two kids.
This skinny house looks like three white boxes stack together, and stark contrast with the building of the neighborhood.
The inside is minimalist interior and filled by natural light through the skylight in the upside of the void, the inclined walls and box-shaped floating stairs are impressive!
Inspiration from architect:
I rotated the volume of the second floor 14 degrees for the axis of the building, and interstitial spaces between the rotated wall and the outer wall of the building became voids.
Moreover, one of two walls rotated 14 degrees on the plan of the second floor is also inclined to the verticality, and the part which overlaps with stairs is turned up, and has become like origami or a facet.
