Storage House

This 56 m2 (606 ft2) residence by Ryuji Fujimura has a basement level, which is uncommon in Japan. The first and second floors are connected by a double-height living space. The other rooms cascade upward around the central stairwell. This vertical core provides ample daylight and draws fresh cool air from vents in the basement.

The project is featured in our own magazine; Jutakutokushu February, 2012.
