twin megaphone

'twin megaphone', a single family residence for a couple and their two daughters in setagaya, tokyo, japan has been recently completed 
by tokyo-based architectural firm atelier tekuto. the rectangular plot upon which the dwelling is placed has an inclined grade, 
determining the bisected form which has been bridged with an open-air terrace. the trapezoidal volumes are set within the 
sloped contours with the largest facades oriented towards the south, introducing abundant amounts of natural daylight into 
the upper level living and dining area in one element and into corridors and bedroom in the other. positioned on the opposite side, 
clerestory ribbon windows introduce northern sunlight into the central living space.
