House in Ikoma by arbol
House in Ikoma is a minimalist residence located in Nara, Japan, designed by arbol. The clients requested an open floor plan in order for the residents to feel a sense of unity as a family. The architects utilized double height ceilings toward the entrance, along with large glazings in order to provide ample natural lighting. The aim of this design was for wind, natural sunlight, and air to run through the whole area freely and effectively.
