House in Osaka by Yoshihiro Yamamoto Architects Atelier

House in Osaka is a minimalist home located in Osaka, Japan, designed by Yoshihiro Yamamoto Architects Atelier. The home is situated in a narrow lot, thus forcing the architects to expand the residence vertically. The result is a split-level structure with each space within receiving ample natural lighting from the large windows. The architects described the process as creating six types of floors within one box. The first level consists of the basement, the second level contains the garage, the third level is space for the children, the fourth level is the living space, the fifth level includes the bathroom, and the sixth level leads to the roof terrace.
