House in Ikehana by Atelier 24

House in Ikehana is a residence with a minimalist internal courtyard located in Chiba, Japan, designed by Atelier 24. The home is situated on a corner lot with the frontage facing the south. The entrance of the building features an elongated area that provides space for parking, and the windowless front facade reveals only a wooden door. In actuality, the front facade blocks off an entire section of an internal courtyard, which is accessible from the main living area via a series of glazed sliding doors. The doors open up the main living area seamlessly with the outdoor space, effectively doubling the size living area.
