Residential Architecture: Yakumo Apartments by Hidetaka Shirako Architect & Associates + OUVI: “.. the design consists of four free-standing volumes that are arranged in an offset fashion to integrate pockets of outdoor space into the layout..conceived as a collection of small houses, the project offers four apartment units and individual outdoor gardens. the void spaces give off the impression of having been excised out of a larger collective volume, being finished in a lighter paneling to the dark metallic skin of the residences. offering two levels of living space, the interior utilizes a simple, open-concept layout. large windows face out to the gardens, establishing an active dialogue with the outdoors. though autonomous structures, the individual apartments remain linked through verandas..” Interior courtyard, thoughtful fenestration, adequate natural light, privacy, interesting interior volumes, spiral staircases..
