Residential Architecture: Unou House by Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates: “..A tall and narrow entrance slopes down to a low and wide living space at this triangular house in Japan by Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates..Located in Toyota in Aichi Prefecture, the black wooden house is arranged between two frames at either end, one vertical and the other horizontal.. The frames create a sloping roof and walls between them as the two-storey entrance diminishes to a single storey at the rear..A series of wooden frames have been arranged throughout the interior as freestanding doorways..At the lower end of the house is the main living area with full-length sliding windows looking out onto a train track..The upper floor contains two bedrooms and loft space for another bed, as well as a terrace overlooking the entrance..” Interesting form, interior volumes, disposition; extensive glazing, natural light..
