Okayama, Japan  –  UID Architects

Photography by: Koji Fujii/Nacása & Partners Inc.

There can be no doubting that UID ignore just about every conventional constraint of residential design.  This home is designed for a family of three and, as is common in Japanese culture most space is shared.  Construction is a mix of concrete, cedar panelling, ply and cherry wood flooring.
