This small house is built at a very small typical mini-developed site, which is also located in a typical built-up housing area in Tokyo. I proposed New urban house form against densely area like this.So I decided to call this house, "Tokyo".
Within this project, I proposed new urban lifestyle, which was made by overlapping programs and new design possibilities against built-up area. First, I divided the envelope by the law to the Concrete box, north and the Glass box, south. And then stacked 2 volumes, which had 4m ceiling height space in them.As a result, this house is included new interior space just like a terrace, and represent new urban life style against the Tokyo urban environment.
