House of Shinamoto-ChoEdit profile
Located in Osaka, Japan, ‘House of Shinamoto-Cho’ by Container Design, has been aligned to the existing residential grid providing a clear visual connection with the surrounding landscape. Oriented to frame views of the region’s mountains, the building forms a subtle, yet direct, relationship with nature. Occupying a narrow plot of land, a central axis cuts through the heart of the linear design allowing for a clear spatial organization of rooms and programs. Living quarters are situated at ground level, while larger bedrooms are upstairs, brightly lit from above. Carefully placed and modestly sized apertures ensure that the house remains private, despite its proximity to other buildings.
