House in Kataokayama by Yoshihiro Yamamoto

Located in Niro, Japan, this modern single family house has been designed in 2020 by Yoshihiro Yamamoto.

Description

It is a house built on the hillside on the south side of the Yamato River. The house consists of a base with bedroom and closet, a main floor with living room and sanitary, and a large gable roof. The three functions of the gable roof are to ensure a smooth approach from the parking lot to the entrance, to focus on the view from the living room, and to take in light and wind from the triangular slit on the side.
