located in a residential area of japan’s aichi prefecture, atelier tekuto has completed ‘house in nagoya’, serving as both a family home and studio. the two-storey dwelling presents an angled façade to the passing street with part of the structure cantilevered above the home’s driveway.

 

internally, living accommodation is contained within the property’s lower level, while studio space and sleeping quarters are positioned above. an angled roofplane, punctuated with various skylights, illuminates all areas of the house ensuring a comfortable and pleasant environment. working closely with local craftsmen, materials synonymous with the region are employed to help establish a cohesive design.
