Tokyo Residence by Yasuhiro Yamashita

Sometimes I find interesting things on the internet and I want to post here on Freshome, but I hesitate, just to find them later on another website and then I don’t know why but I want to post them. I’ve found this collection of images of interesting houses in Tokyo at Flickr almost a week ago but as I’ve said before I wasn’t in the mood to post, but today I’ve found these pictures again on Orangebeautiful, and I really liked this Tokyo residence by architect Yasuhiro Yamashita. Is a great example of how you can use just a small piece of land to build an really interesting piece of architecture. If you want to see more interesting pieces like this you can check the Tokyo Architecture set on Flickr.

    That is hideous. I like weird homes and buildings but the outside of that house has no flow.

    Call me crazy, but I like it.

    You’re crazy :P

    I really don’t think that this home is using the space it’s given very efficiently. I love modern and minimalist designs, but I also like room to live inside a home…

    I enjoy the execution all the way until we get to the major lines and material of the exterior. Hideous. So much more could have been done in that regard. Light cement and a protruding single window? Not even trying, IMHO. Everything else about that house seems great, though.

    Hi,

    I kinda like this project although I always wonder how the house will look inside :-)
    Maybe painting that metal thing (I don’t know the name in english…heck…not even in portuguese) for the car to go over the sidewalk with the same colour as the house, might present an interesting “extension” of the house.

    Kind regards,

    José

    Wow! That’s really nice house!
    If you can, please try to get some inside photos.

    Regards,
    Dave

    Somehow the house elevates the car to art as well, the way it frames it. Clever!

    Hello, I am a student architecture from Holland and planning to visit Tokyo in February. Right now I’m in my final year, because of my subject “small buildings in lost spaces” I am planning to visit Tokyo. This building [mineral building] would be perfect to analyze, but I can’t find an address, so I hoped you find out already.
    I hope you can help me with the address.

    Kind regards,
    Marije

    Fascinating exterior lines. I'd love to see the inside …

  18. January 7, 2010

    Yes, a house just like this house, thank you very much.
    And small cars = a good thing….
    but I'm swimming against the rip tide.

    http://www.tekuto.com/works/private/index1.html
    it’s japanese, but you can still see some interior pictures, as well as other great projects, if you are interested

    I personally like his works

    Maybe you could make changes to the blog subject title Tokyo Residence by Yasuhiro Yamashita to more catching for your content you make. I loved the post withal.
