japanese practice horibe naoko architect office has sent us images of 'adzuki', a small three-storey 
private residence for a single family in himeji-shi, hyogo, japan. situated on a plot measuring a little over
80 m2, the exceptionally compact design seeks to establish an open sense of space by carefully
arranging rooms around an interior courtyard.
