A tall Tokyo dwelling

 

Short project in the course Advanced Architectural Design in year 5. In pairs of two we were assigned to design a shared narrow house for ourselves on the topic 'dwelling in a dense city'. The small plot is located in central Tokyo and the maximum footprint allowed was 4x6 metres.

The concept of the house is a horisontal lightwell. A solid wooden shell is run through by a frosted glass volume from short end to short end and illuminates the solid shell from the inside.
