The Nerima House is located on a 100 square meter lot on the outskirts of Tokyo. In order to optimize the use of space, the architects introduced a semi-submerged floor with the main entrance. The rest of the residence spans two levels and, instead of featuring several smaller spaces, it has an open plan that creates a more airy feel. The owners insisted on preserving as much as possible of the existing greenery, large parts of which surround the new house as a protective shield.

The facade, dominated by a glass strip window, is clad in timber. Flooding the interior with natural light, the strip window, supported by a series of white steel columns that mitigate interference with the facade’s horizontality, offers an impressive 360-degree view of the surrounding area.
