Prize Selected
This house was built on the small site in crowded Osaka Town. The clients are two families. They expected a blight and wind-through house. But site is small and slim like Kyoto's town houses. So, I designed the house with small court (light well) and transparent facade. The facade is made of aluminum square pipes.
