Name: House in Minami-azabu
Location: Tokyo, Japan
House in Minami-azabu is a minimal home located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Hitoshi Wakamatsu Architect and Associates. This four-story residence, which is surrounded by small-scale residences and offices, is distinctive in its unique, multi-faceted geometry. The living and dining areas have high-ceilings in order to make the space feel more expansive.
The four levels are connected by a cantilevered spiral staircase that runs across the center of the home. There are also smaller sloped steps that are glazed with a darker texture in order to contrast from the mostly white interior. The home is mostly covered in exposed concrete with sleek glossy floors on the upper levels.
