tomoaki uno architects has designed yomogidai house with a blind street façade, behind which the master bedroom is located. the main entrance is placed midway through the length of the residence, between the car and bicycle parking spaces. while the front elevation does not feature any openings, the back elevation is characterized by a floor-to-ceiling window that brings in plenty of natural light. there, the living room, kitchen and dining area coexist within one single room.tomoaki uno architects completes wooden house in japan with blind street façade

 

 

the house is built in wood both in its exterior and in its interior spaces, including floors, walls, cabinets and other furniture. its design takes its cues from japanese shrines, referencing their architecture on the general form of the construction as well as on the shape of the roof.
