Guesthouse in Karuizawa main

HOUSE IN YAYOIDAI

This residence is situated the suburb of Tokyo - Yokohama metropolitan area, within a small lot; to maximize the living area several rooms are positioned at a semi-underground level;

thus two courtyards have been opened inside the building to ensure a healthy air flow across each space of the house as well as a generous amount of natural lighting. Furthermore, several skylights make interiors even brighter, blurring the boundary between the residence and the outer realm.

The structural system combines exposed concrete with lightweight steel elements.
