House in Hori by Nakasai Architects

House in Hori is a minimalist house located in Ohno, Japan, designed by Nakasai Architects. An odd-looking site located in the middle of a residential area has been treated like a blind spot in this area. It was once used for a field, and then for a fish farm. It has not been used for residential purposes in a long time. Houses surrounding the site have windows facing the site. (19)

House in Hori is a minimalist house located in Ohno, Japan, designed by Nakasai Architects. An odd-looking site located in the middle of a residential area has been treated like a blind spot in this area. It was once used for a field, and then for a fish farm. It has not been used for residential purposes in a long time. Houses surrounding the site have windows facing the site. When planning, it was crucial to preserve the privacy of clients while providing an open atmosphere. To that end, the first floor and second floor are connected by a spiraling corridor facing a courtyard, which limits the visibility from outside and serve to preserve the privacy. Its living space is open toward a courtyard which is in the middle of this house as a comfortable “outside space.” Surrounding the courtyard is the spiraling corridor, porch, dinning, kitchen, stairs, bedroom, entrance, and garage.
