Danchi Hutch \ YYAA

• July 10, 2013

Designed by Yoshihiro Yamamoto of YYAA, this small house is designed for a craftman and his mother. They had lived in a Danchi for a long time. Danchi is notorious Japanese housing complex. Since it is too narrow, it is often called “The rabbit hutch.” When the client consulted us to build their new residence, they requested to design too narrow house although the site is large enough . As a matter of fact , Danchi was most precious lifestyle for them. So we designed minimal house like Danchi which has only 3 small rooms and a garage.
