House in Higashiyodogawa is a minimalist residence located in Osaka, Japan, designed by NRM* Architects Office. The first floor of the building occupies the parents’ bedrooms while the upper level is inhabited by the children. The home is centered around a courtyard that provides abundant ventilation and natural lighting into all of the various spaces. The pitched roof creates double-height ceilings for the main living space, and conceals ambient lighting between the walls.
