A peaceful, calm and quiet residential district in Yokohama, Kanawaga, Japan nestles an oddly shaped home for a young family of four with two children, it has been envisioned by Tetsuo Kondo. In the irregular-shaped white wooden home a small garden has been envisioned to honor the traditional Japanese homes. Spaciousness adorned in a spectacular unique shape invites an airy, elegant ambiance that creates a comfortable and relaxing ambiance for the inhabitants.

Nature has been brought indoors through small potted gardens planted all around, the home also enjoys lush forest views on the back and the city silhouette on the other end  thus finding the perfect balance in positioning as it allows the family to enjoy nature`s wonders whilst being in the range of a town`s perks.

The interior design is characterized by all-white design embellished around natural wood; each room is organized vertically to further emphasize the feeling of space.

“These gardens, or intermediate spaces, not only connect the interior to the exterior spaces but are common spaces for the family. Although each room is independent, these non-specific areas allow the rooms to extend and mix with each other creating new spaces with each use. It also allows the family to circulate the small house in many different ways.”
