Our Japanese friend and ambitious architect Keiji Ashizawa recently finished this renovation project on a two storeyed single family house in his hometown Tokyo.

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.”

Here is what the architect explains:

“11 steel frame boxes are formed using steel angles and used as the main structure while external wall panels are attached on without the need of any additional structure. The size of the steel boxes needed to be considered carefully as it has to fit on a truck to be transported to site. These boxes are then joined together with high tension bolts on site. Though the central span holds the main structural strength of the building, the circulation stair is intentionally positioned there to operate as an earthquake-proof element as well as to rationalize the plan of the house. Span of the stair is 1.75m, wet area is 2.2m, bedrooms and living area are 2.55m and a varied unit is made fully utilize the limited depth available on site.”
