Completed in 2018, Yomogidai House is a minimal residence located in Nagoya, Japan, designed by Uno Tomoaki Architects. It took about a year for the site to meet the client’s requirements – a middle-aged single man with a future marriage planned.
Located about 20 minutes east of Nagoya by car, the site was a gentle slope with a frontage of 8m and a depth of 28m. The architects decided to make it elaborate and elegant as requested by the client. In the end, they took the hint of the Japanese architectural shrine and proceeded with the plan. The studio was able to incorporate all the elements into thin pillars and beams and deliver them rationally.
