House D: Japanese Home with an Eccentric Gabled Roof and Unique Floor Plan
A rough terrain, irregular site and an orientation that required design balance were just of the many design conundrums that House D in Nishinomiya, Japan presented. Designed by Yuichi Yoshida & Associates this modern family residence finds smart living solutions in out-of-the-box ideas that move away from the mundane and create a cozy, comfortable home. An eccentric gabled roof is the most distinctive feature of the house when viewed from outside. The roof is much more than just an aesthetic choice as the terrain and the floor plan defined its final form. A courtyard and atrium bring in ample natural light with greenery finding its way inside the house.
