House H is a minimal home located in Chiba, Japan, designed by Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects. The home is for a young couple and their child in a neighborhood developed as a residential area in the outskirts of Tokyo. The architects wanted the home to symbolize hope for the future, thus providing the home with an expansive roof coupled with eight Y-shaped wooden frames.

Similar to attic beams of traditional wooden architecture, these Y-frames, which are made of bonded wood, run throughout the entire home. Although the residence is just one space under a large roof, it is divided loosely with the beams.
