house I by yoshichika takagi

Japanese architecture studio Yoshichika Takagi has completed the House I located in Akita City, Japan. With an undeniable inspirational architecture, the building lies in the middle of an urban area, surrounded by large commercial buildings. As you can see from the pictures, privacy was a problem when designing this structure. The architects had to be careful to keep a balance between the private parts of the residence and the public spaces. The interior of the building was thus created as a balanced and carefully studied space composition, with a semi-enclosed floor plan that protects the privacy of the inhabitants.
