'House in atsugi'24. May2011

Sometimes the land constraints of the place where you are about to build a house can lead to surprising, creative solutions for both interior and exterior. Naoya Kawabe Architects successfully solved this after they had to deal with a few tough constraints when they build the 'House in astugi' located in Central Kanagawa prefecture, Japan.

First of all the plot is very tight due to its placement in between two streets that form a hairpin and second, the entire building spot is a sloped hill, which created a challenge to have an efficient interior space while the exterior had to adapt the site conditions.

The result is a house which perfectly adapts to the place while its interior was negotiated to get maximum of space for daily activities.
