Light Grain House Yoshiaki Y Architect. Osaka, Japan

IMG_1

Located in Osaka, Light Grain house was designed by the Japanese architecture practice Yoshiaki Yamashita Architect & Associates. The residence is characterized by a mesh metal grate providing its residents with a well-balanced incorporation of natural light, ventilation, and privacy.
A three-storey home was designed for a young couple and their son. The highly inventive design of the house, featuring perforated façade with hundreds of circular openings diffuse daylight throughout the building.
Due to the densely inhabited area, the team of Yoshiaki Yamashita Architect & Associates had to take into account an importance of providing a family with a sufficient privacy. The small sun-soaked courtyard brings a little shelter and is smartly connected with the living space. The ground floor also adjoins a traditional Japanese room, completed with tatami mats. A staircase leads to the home’s primary living accommodation above, where the kitchen and a spacious dining room flanked by two terraces are placed. The uppermost storey contains the dwelling’s sleeping quarters and features a fully external balcony elevated above the surrounding neighborhood.
