House for Y by Kurosawa Kawara-ten
House for Y is a minimal home located in Ichihara, Japan, designed by Kurosawa Kawara-ten. The house is situated within a quiet residential neighborhood of Chiba, surrounded by homes that retained their original structures from when the city was first built. Due to the fact that the neighbors are seldom home, the client wanted to keep the space open with large windows and a courtyard. The residence features an upper volume constructed of metal that sets atop a wooden ground floor foundation.
