Tidal Wave Residence is a minimal home located in Toyama, Japan, designed by Nakasai Architects. The house is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood with abundant surrounding greenery. Even though the area had limited density, the architects still wanted a bare frontage to preserve the privacy of the residents. The roof extends outward to create a covered parking garage for up to two cars. An interior courtyard provides abundant natural light and airflow for the internal programs.
