Katsuhiro Miyamoto Architects recently completed their latest residential project, Bird House. These pictures are from the open house that was held back in April.
The home sits on a sloping site and is comprised of 3 bird-house-like rooms that are connected by ramps. The architectural feat must have been a bureaucratic nightmare. I have no idea how they got the city of Nagoya to sign off on this project but I’m certainly glad they did because it is astonishing.
I thought it was very clever how the ramp mimics the road passing in front and behind the house.
