japanese practice ALTS design office has completed ‘hazukashi house’, a property located in a residential neighborhood of suburban kyoto. positioned on a typically small plot of land, the design is centered around a communal dining area placed at the heart of the family home.

 

the gabled form of the dwelling’s façade is referenced repeatedly inside the residence, with various apertures and doorways mimicking the shape of the external elevation. internally, the two-storey structure is clad in timber, with an open wooden stairway connecting the home’s ground level living quarters with the bedroom and study situated at the upper storey. carefully placed openings in the building’s envelope ensure that the house remains brightly and naturally lit throughout the year.
