Name: Y House
Designer: Hideyuki Nakayama Architects
Location: Hiroshima, Japan
Y House is a minimalist house located in Hiroshima, Japan, designed by Hideyuki Nakayama Architects. The home is two-storys with one side that is completely grey and practically windowless, and the other a curved, white wall that matches the color of the adjacent building. via
The site on which this home resides is a narrow, but deep residential lot. The sloping roof provides ample natural light, which also gives a lofty attic-like atmosphere for the upstairs bedrooms. Indirect light from the neighbor’s white walls are reflected into the interior space.
