House in Shigaraki by Junichi Kato Associates
House in Shigaraki is a minimalist house located in Shiga, Japan, designed by Junichi Kato & Associates. The L-shaped building is positioned to open out onto a garden on its southern flank, and a large pent roof covers the entire building. Centering on the living room atrium, the interior features slits to provide passage for air and natural light, and openings in the walls in various locations. Air and natural light move around the space under the large roof as the day and the seasons change.
