lik house

japanese practice satoru hirota architects have completed the 'lik house', a single family dwelling within a residential area
of the business district in tokyo, japan. taking the form of a tube wrapping around an outdoor courtyard, each room links to the next
within the continuous volume of this single storey house. with three stores placed at the site's boundary and medium-rise buildings
surrounding context, the low profile structure becomes concealed by the built environment, adding sense of privacy and creating 
a resort atmosphere.
