This wonder small residence is in the suburbs of Osaka on a mere 60sqm. This small house designed with big spiral staircase has windows carefully placed and sized to capture views of the scenery beyond the adjacent train track and car park. The spiral staircase and the 3 stacked boxes are complementary.
It is composed of an atelier for the flower arrangement on the first floor, the bedroom and bathroom on the second floor, and the living dining rooms on the third floor.
A new awareness of the surrounding exterior scenery is created as the outside appears and disappears depending on the angle from the opening in each room facing the staircase.
