Again, this building is a master piece of material usage and working with space. This unusual place contains the housing of a young couple with their cat.
While mny architects still design the facade and more or less the interior, Yasuhiro Yamashita continoues fabric and structure strictly into living space.
It is not a question of minimalism to be able to live there, it is a question of understanding how to live - reducing housing to its fundamental meaning.
The semipermeable fabric of the exterior let sunlight in, but also privacy out - the inhabitants become a part of the neighbourhood.
