located in a quiet residential neighborhood of central tokyo, japan is ‘house s’, a single family residence by tokyo-based studio keiji ashizawa. the site of an old samurai residence, the area is filled with mature pine and zelkova trees, enabling a design which connects with nature and removes itself from the urban district. each floor incorporates plantings, with the ground level boundary to the dining and living area opening to a lushly vegetated garden, allowing the greenery is permeate the wooden interior.

the interior was configured as a series of small spaces, reducing the complexity of the arrangement and producing a variety of quaint experiences dictated by air flow, natural light filtering from outside and art work.

  • Love the various lines created from ceiling to stairs to terrace. The interior has much depth and the outside is very serene.

  • are here the stairs considered to be a masterpiece or useful mean to move? too strong impact to other – minimal

    ardesmida
  • great staircase

    as for the view from the upper floor, window treatment would ruin the wonderful crystaline quality

  • Very sweet. Besides very sensitive architecture I can see bits of the personalities from the inhabitants. And besides; I love the downspout 🙂

    Mario
  • Very sexy and serene – except for the view from the “upper level.” Maybe a window treatment to hide the house next door?
