adzuki | Naoko Horibe

This compact three-story residence is located on an 82m² lot bordered by roads on three sides. All the rooms look out on a courtyard planted with trees, bringing a sense of the changing seasons to the interior of the house.
Even the bath has a large fixed window that allows bathers to enjoy the green of the trees outside. The white of the courtyard walls can be glimpsed here and there through the large windows in the adzuki-bean-colored exterior, giving a sense of depth to the house despite its compact design.
