This distinctive, metal-clad single family house located in Nagoya was completed earlier last year by a Japanese practice Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates. Featuring an angular, alternating roof, the two-storey residence comprises a number of small rooms on the upper floor while a living area and an enclosed patio are situated on the ground floor of the 100-square-meters house.
More about the development:
‘We examine a row of small rooms towards the depth on demand of a client who wants many small rooms. After the order fixed, we examined each width depending on suitable scales of the rooms. We edit composition of the sections. They melt together or overlap each other on the first floor and are integrated in the space for the family. Come to think of it, a family is the smallest unit of social groups and to build a house like this way might be natural consequence and effective way in the time that individuality is naturally respected among his or her family. ‘
