Giant House in Oiso is a minimalist residence located in Kanagawa, Japan, designed by Fumiko Takahama Architects.
This is a dwelling for young couples in a residential area just off the sea in Oiso Town, Kanagawa Prefecture. The studio wanted to propose a house where the client can fully experience the “size” of the site, big enough for two couples.
First, instead of the general northern approach road – parking area – full frontage volume – south facing garden, with a long and narrow volume, the studio used the width of the site. In addition, because it is at the end of a T-junction road, the volume is moved to the east, creating a gap to prevent the flow of air and wind, pulling the road and extending the contact point with the city.
