Yamashina House is a minimal residence located in Kyoto, Japan, designed by ALTS Design Office. The region features densely built plots that restrict usable space for gardens or green spaces. The architects wanted to create a sense of space and greenery, thus designed uniquely angled volumes to compensate. By bringing together several smaller volumes and connecting smaller spaces together, it was possible to have green areas dotted around the site, incorporating the exterior area into the building and creating a rich environment even with a limited plot.
