japanese architect tomoaki uno has designed a residential property in a quiet residential area completed entirely from wood. positioned on an awkwardly sloping site, ‘hitostuyama house’ is constructed from beautifully crafted timber with a series of external balconies encircling the property. referencing le corbusier’s ‘dom-ino house’ the design features a series of open-plan spaces with beams and pillars positioned at its perimeter, freeing walls from structural loads. the residence accommodates a family of four, two parents and their younger children.
