House F by Kenji Ido is a house designed for a couple in Osaka, Japan, made of wood, is three stories high and is located on a narrow urban site. The neighbourhood is mixed-use where small houses, small factories, and small office buildings coexist without much harmony.

Because the client requested a garden on the south side of the site, the building was made with three stories to secure the required number of rooms. The aim was to create a quiet, calming space with extensive wood throughout and paint finished walls.

Interior space is bright thanks to several openings, surprising considering the density. A supporting beam in the void beside the kitchen and the kitchen counter were produced using the same material, the “elements were united, and ‘Meaning’ of the beam and the counter was obscured.” says Ido.
