Uji House by ALTS Design Office
Uji House is a minimal home located in Kyoto, Japan, designed by ALTS Design Office. This house is located in a residential district of Uji city and is surrounded by old houses which are slowly being rebuilt. The architects wanted to make the house feel open even though the site was limiting. In order to create a better ambience, the designers intentionally avoided placing the door opposite the window. Lastly, the architects wanted to focus on privacy for the residents.
