This airy, one-storey detached residence for a family of five was realised by a Yokohama-based architectural practice Takeshi Hosaka Architects. Featuring a minimalist interior, floor-to-ceiling windows and a characteristic, zigzagging roof, the 102-square-meters ‘Outside In’ house was completed in 2011.

More about the project:

 

‘This is a house for a couple and their three daughters. I looked for how the residents here could live in harmony with such nature and climate even in a crowded residential area. I planned a structure in which nature is horizontally and vertically incorporated as an integral part of the design of the structure to create a gradation from the outside area to the inside areas. To put it concretely, the open shed lies facing the south, which makes it possible for the residents to feel as if they were in one room, filled with a sense of unity with the wooden area.’
