Residential Architecture: Y House by Hideyuki Nakayama Architects: “..the ‘y house’ in hiroshima, japan is designed by hideyuki nakayama architects and has been introduced by JA+U (Japan Architecture+Urbanism. a white exterior wall curves down the length of this narrow lot, creating a color-coordinated relationship with its neighbor. the 95 square meter dwelling was conceived as both a ‘gray cliff’ and ‘white valley’, using a windowless exposed concrete facade to overlook the bordering empty lot. a roof slopes downwards towards the driveway, introducing daylight reflecting from the adjacent three-storey tall building through skylights. the indirect illumination within the upper level creates an attic-like atmosphere for the bedrooms..” Interesting form and, perhaps, interior volumes..sad paucity of images..
