Residential Architecture: 43base House by Miurashin Architect + Associates: “..stackable units are defined with a framework which has been constructed with 150mm x 150mm x 12mm L-shaped steel elements that have been prefabricated in a factory. stepped into a hill, a garage at street level is the initial point of entry. a spiral staircase leads inhabitants into the first level kitchen..from this room, the interior opens up vertically with a visible spiraling of successive rooms around a single column. connected with stairways or elevated upon a platform, the quad-form plan maximizes the airiness despite the site’s limited area. sightlines continue across the spaces, offering aerial views into lower parts of the dwelling. positioned on the highest storey, a bedroom is placed to conceal itself from view from the common areas below. the retreat opens to a roof terrace, overlooking the encompassing urban district..”  Commendable, visually intriguing interior volumes and sight-lines for this home on a severely constraint urban site; extensive glazing, natural light, materiality and form sensibility, roof terrace..
