This is housing project in Tokyo. We would like to rethink the architecture not as the act to produce an area like a box, but as a folded surface created by the movement of the ground. Here, the balance of the pressure between the inside and the outside produces the bumped walls or roofs, which creates one big volume with subtle division.

We can see the jostle between the inside and the outside in each rooms for example, the direct shape of roofs, diagonal protruding created by external stairs or distortion of the space by the folded walls.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoProject gallerySee allShow lessButler House / Andrew Maynard ArchitectsArticlesFreshLatino at Storefront for Art and ArchitectureArticlesProject locationAddress:Kita, Tokyo, JapanLocation to be used only as a reference.
