Kamiuma House by CHOP + ARCHI Architects

The mantra behind architectural firm CHOP+ARCHI seemingly states that everything has its right place. The Kamiuma Houseis an explicit example of this statute in placement alone. Just outside of Shibuya, the residential district of Setagaya, Tokyo, the Kamiuma House sits at the sharp angle made by two connecting streets. The clients eagerly wanted a home that offered both privacy as well a connection to the outdoors. Because of how densely populated the neighbourhood is, Kamiuma House offers three visual voids to inhibit nosy neighbours from peering in. These voids act as a channel, allowing light to pour down and effectively fill the home. The open structure of the interior mimics a bungalow, with lofty stairs that allow for sound and light to travel through the home freely. Custom-fit amenities and varied windows add a sense of space in the otherwise snug locality.
