The Japanese architect Akitoshi Ukai and his practice AUAU have realised this two-storey, detached house located in Seto, Aichi Prefecture. Characterised by a slanted wrap-like façade made of fibre-reinforced plastic, the minimalist structure has been designed to accomodate a young family of four.

Located in a densely built-up area, house’s multifaceted ‘shell’ provides its residents with privacy and the completed in 2010 building has been awarded the Japanese Good Design Award in the same year.
