another response to japan’s dense urban landscapes resolves itself by applying the morphological characteristics of the large scale city into a singlefamily residence typology. the ‘house in goido’ by japanese practice fujiwaramuro architects retains a private ‘public’ space within a protected central courtyard while it closes off views and access from the exterior of the site. the formal concept is conceived of as four independent structureslike mini skyscrapers connected through a series of bridges and open-air patios. the central plaza, replete with palm trees, is the heart of the dwellingthat creates a comfortable exterior oasis uniting all the surrounding closed spaces. program is stacked in a vertical fashion so that each level in the buildings is one room. the ground level contains a bedroom and tatami room, followed by the kitchen, dining area, work space, children’s room,laundry room and finally the roof balcony that overlooks the private alley-like center. the sequence of circulation then takes the user through a journey of half levels and bridges, between interior and exterior, displacing as much horizontally as vertically within the same structure.
