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.
