Okurayama House by Kiyonobu Nakagame Architects
This home was also built on an irregular hilly site but the similarities end there. In this instance the overall design was informed by the surrounding neighborhood, which included cherry-lined streets to the North and South, as well as low-rise housing in both directions.
Supported by 2 steel columns, the structure is defined by a carved out entryway that acts as almost an extension of the road passing in front. The entryway gently guides you inside, where you are greeted by a bowl-shaped hall that radiates outwards into its surround spaces.
