Y House | TOFU

• April 29, 2011

Y House is a small house designed by Japanese architect TOFU in Obama, Fukui, Japan. There is a vacant lot around the site. So, by creating a large window on the second floor, it is possible to see paddy fields, mountains, sky and feel to spread over a floor area.

This plan has high ceilings and large living with cross sections of two small rooms. By the relationship between great room and small room, TOFU created many different places in the small house. The house is wrapped with galvalume, the black masses standing quietly in vacant lot are familiar with the countryside.
