Gravel coats the exterior of this house in Japan by Keitaro Muto Architects, including a wedge-shaped block with outward sloping walls. Named Ginan House, the two-storey residence is located at the back of a long and narrow site, behind a gravel garden that separates it from the street. A small swimming pool is tucked into a recess in the facade, marking the divide between the two overlapping blocks that comprise the building. Sloping walls continue inside the house and separate the two bedrooms and staircase in one block from a third bedroom and a living and dining room in the other. A walk-in-closet and small toilet are also located on the first floor and can only be accessed by crossing a metal bridge.
