Yamaga - house and restaurant07. Sep2011

TAGS: house

Yamaga was constructed on a long and narrow space determined by two houses at the street. Due to the two functions that had to be hosted in the same building, the house uses a courtyard as a buffer between the restaurant areas and the private house areas.

The site communicates from both ends, one being the restaurant entrance and the other the house entrance.
