Otsu House by ALTS Design Office

Photographer: Yuta Yamada

This house was built in the newly-developed subdivision surrounding new housing. While planning a design with client many times, we hit upon a keyword: “comfy house” so we considered how to make a welcoming atmosphere with lots of light. With a vault –shaped opening in the simply laid-out compartment, the space is designed to be airy and rhythmical. The light spilling through a large curved window will encompass the room in a comfy manner. You can enjoy the light and shadows made by sunrise and sunset. This “comfy house” will lead you to an unusual world. (more…)

The romantic experience of “Grand Tour” revolved around discovering the distinctive nature of every individual location by studying the traditions and culture of the various countries involved. This idea of a journey of discovery in Apulia through forms of popular culture, which generally refer to the sensibility, sentiments and iconic traits characterising Italian culture in southern Italy in particular, provides the starting point for the architects’ process of design for restructuring this 200 m² apartment close to the old part of Bari.
