House of Yabugaoka is a minimalist house located in Osaka, Japan, designed by Flame Planning Office. This building exists in a growing town where old homes and a new homes coexist. The road on the south side of the building is narrow and is in the location higher than the residence’s site. The land on the north side, conversely, is lower than a site. With the uneven topography, the architect looked for ways to increase privacy while also maintaining natural lighting within the space.
