‘house in sakuragaoka’ by tokyo-based atelier yoritaka hayashi architects is a multi-level private dwelling for a family in a remote residential area of seiko, kyoto, japan. focusing on creating a sense of connection between the inhabitants of the house, the design creates and offsets four levels within the two-storey volume to establish slivers of views from one area of the residence to another.

making the most of the relatively large plot, the design generates a generous outdoor garden and lawn to the west, creating privacy through two low-rising fence units. the ground floor is finished with a sliding system of floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the corner facing the garden. acting as an open interface, the internal communal programs can be completely extended to the outdoors.

slightly overlapping with the ground floor, a platform level accommodating the study, tatami mats, and a terrace above the parking space is accessed by a central spiral staircase. sounds and activities between the two levels can be observed through a strip of open space. the highest level, resting above the dining, living and kitchen, holds the bedroom and children’s room which gain privacy and separation by a small wooden deck in between.
