This house architecture design which called the Shakujii Y House is designed by the architect Ikeda Yukie Architects. This beautiful living space is covers area for about 90 square meters and it was progressed in 2011.
By the architect, this house architecture design is conceived as a suburb family house design. This living space is precisely sited in a lot in the northwest corner; it is adjacent to vacant lots to the south and the southeast. As a result, this makes it impossible to predict the amount of the daylight it which is received in the future. For this reason, the architect has designed with the aim of allowing ample natural light into the living space in any circumstance.

House Architecture Design Solution
The first thing that the architect has to do is placed a main simple volume in the form of a gable roof. Then, the architect created inner/outer spaces for hobby and pleasure; it is achieved by adding and pulling small volumes from the primary volume. This achievement is connects the family spaces and private spaces, it is allowing the natural light to travel across the rooms inside this living space while transmitting the atmosphere.
To invite the natural light from the top side window of the loft all the way to the glass floor of the living room on the ground level, the rooms inside the living space are allocated. By the ceiling mirror, the light is being reflected; it is crosses through the glass floor of the MBR and reaches the living space. The volume under the outer stairs to the roof deck is connecting the dining room and a bedroom, so that rooms inside the living space can share the natural light.
To block the sunlight and heat in the summer, the terrace and the eaves are designed. Which is equipped with a built-in air circulation system powered by the solar panel, this living space is well insulated in the winter.
