led by kentaro takeguchi and asako yamamoto, japanese architecture office alphaville, has completed a primarily single storey dwelling that serves as both an atelier and residence for an artistic couple. in order to host various activities, including temporary exhibitions and other social events, ‘skyhole’ has been designed to be as flexible as possible.

 

the parallelogram-shaped floor plan is divided into three areas, with living and working space divided by the sleeping accommodation found at the center of the home. in response to the region’s strong winds and heavy snowfall, the house has a minimum of openings, with windows positioned at the north and south façades.
