This single family residence located in a typical Tokyo urban environment of closely built surrounding, was designed by the Japanese preactice Keiji Ashizawa Design.


“The four-storey house resolves privacy and light by the idea of two cascading courtyards which spills gradual light into the innermost volume of the house. Due to the differing light intensity from the two courtyards, each space also differs in character and function.”
