House of Shinamoto-Cho by Container Design

This modern Japanese home can be found in a dense residential neighborhood in Osaka, Japan. Called the “House of Shinamoto-Cho” the designers, Container Design, sought to align the new addition within the existing residential grid to provide a visual connection with the immediate surroundings.The building has been oriented to provide framed views of the regions’ mountains, creating a subtle relationship with nature. Like the Long Window House by Another Apartment, the House of Shinamoto-Cho uses carefully positioned and sized windows to provide natural lighting without compromising the privacy of the occupants.
