aoydesign: small house

japanese practice aoydesign has created 'small house', a fifty square meter single family residence located in tokyo, japan.
sited at the junction of three streets, this compact triangulated lot in a densely developed residential area required an 
introspective design to maintain functionality and privacy. four parallel slanted volumes strategically allow natural daylight 
to enter interior spaces while inhibiting direct views from neighbors while minimal penetrations to the facade reduce urban 
sounds which may disturb dwellers.
