in densely populated suburban tokyo, kensuke aisaka of japanese practice AAA, has completed a three-storey house on a typically narrow plot of land. the property’s form is determined by the boundaries of the site, with an extruded porch sheltering a parking space at ground floor level. internally, the home is conceived as a blank canvas, allowing the owners to stamp their own mark on the residence. a guest room is found at the lower level, with primary living accommodation positioned directly above. two bedrooms are contained within the second storey, while an open rooftop terrace is found at the uppermost level – offering views across the neighborhood.
