Melt is a minimalist house located in Osaka, Japan, designed by SAI Architecture Design Office. The site is situated on a slightly elevated lot within a quiet residential area of Osaka. The clients wanted a home that would be able to interact with the surrounding environment, and include an abundance of greenery. The architects decided to place the building on the North side in order to maximize a garden space, and elongating the building. A large roof was set up over the garden space, allowing the space the transition between being external and internal, responding to various changes in lifestyle, weather, etc.
