a simple spatial composition characterizes a vertical home in kobe city, japan by osaka-based coo planning. built of reinforced concrete and wood, the home’s program is distributed throughout a modest footprint over four levels. the heart of the dwelling is a double height, open area comprised of the kitchen and living room. this central void is the main hub of activity for the family of three and is fitted with a orthogonal frontispiece of glazing, allowing the space to be awash with daylight. a residence of layers, the building also sports a mezzanine study area that’s open to the living room and kitchen below it. bedrooms, bathrooms and tatami rooms are smartly composed and spatially consolidated so as to accommodate the mid-level open space.
