The clients of House in Kashiba requested a bath from which they could gaze out on a courtyard.
We planted a “symbol tree” in the courtyard and designed the bathroom to look out over it.
The courtyard brings light and breezes into the bathroom and kitchen/living/dining room while maintaining privacy for the people inside.
The exterior is a black box with square windows on the southern side.
The windows provide an accent to the facade while also gently linking the exterior and interior of the house.
