House in Miyagino by Kazuya Saito Architects

House in Miyagino is a minimalist residence located in Sendai, Japan, designed by Kazuya Saito Architects. The interior is a skip-floor structure combining high ceilings for the second level and low ceilings on the third level. The dining and living area face the south so that those spaces become expansive and bright, where as the bedroom and bathrooms are calm and quiet with the low-ceilings. That difference modulates the space of the house. The core connecting the two volumes has multiple functions, such as the flow continuing from the entrance to the terrace, the path of wind and daylight for the whole house, and the structure supporting a cantilever.
