private residence in Yoyogi
The main purpose of this house is to create a private space that does not ignore the surroinding area, while repeating the basic character of the streets around it.
Hill & Edge are the two basic observations from the area, somewhat dramatic concrete walls in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood translated into the layered facade.
The inner spaces are protected from outside view, mostly turning towards each other. In case of opening to the garden there is a secondary wall hiding the viewer.When privacy or high climatic control is needed the rooms can be completely divided and insulated.
In comfortable weather or when bigger space is required the rooms can be joined through the semi-outdoor terraces.
