This house in the Tokyo neighborhood of Midorigaoka serves as a home for a family of four, where the parents require studio space for writing and sculpting, respectively. The reference for this project is Kazuo Shinohara’s “House on a Curved Road” in Tokyo, costructed in 1978. The strong presence of a secondary structural system in the interior guided the design.
