House in Hokusetsu
Tato Architects
Osaka, Japan
The Japanese firm Tato Architects, headed by YoShimada in Kobe, Japan, built this labyrinthine residence in the city of Osaka, aiming for a versatile but seemingly complex space.

La floor plan came from a geometric pattern that the architect had been studying for some time, and which took on limits adapted to the site. The pattern is formed by squares and rhombuses. The squares contains the main domestic spaces, while the rhombuses are connectors and communal areas.
 
Because the location is a rather dense residential neighborhood, the house has a rather closed exterior, but this does not result in poor natural lighting, as there are two inner courtyards and three garden spaces along the perimeter.
 
The timber frame consists mainly of pillars are the corners of the squares. This makes the interior look calm, despite the unsual layout. The complex connections between spaces create different circulation routes for the client to explore over time. The many autonomous spaces admit multiple lifestyle changes.
