baqueratta: TH house

while utilizing a courtyard to visually enlarge a space is not a new trick in japanese modern architecture, tokyo-based architecture office baqueratta has taken a different spin on the method. 'TH house' is a single family dwelling in tochigi prefecture, japan, which features multiple pockets of courtyard spaces flanking almost all rooms and programs. while extending the interior space is the primary reasoning behind this practice, the house as a whole emphasizes the importance of framing, and how much it can change the individual atmosphere of a room.
