This living space project which located in Kyoto, Japan is designed by the Atelier Boronski. This living space project is precisely located on a small hill which is overlooking the Kyoto city. This suburban house is designed by the architect based on the client order. They are a young couple whose negotiates some tough local design regulations. For the roof and eaves of the living space, virtually there is no choice for it, the wall of the house must be straight and vertical.

The top-light can be no more than 2% of the local roof area which is in a country is famous for the small dark houses. The choice of the acceptable siding materials is limited, and so their color even for the window frames. But which is given by the Kyoto’s remarkable history of the quality, creativity and the inventiveness to preserve it with a dumped down ‘pattern language’ is like putting it in a killing jar, a long-run metal siding with a timber ‘look’ print is acceptable.

Which is recently built with no direct historical connection, some parts of the inner city such as Gion are absolutely historical and warrant clear strong design regulation to manage their preservation but many of the areas affected by stringent design regulations are actually a suburban. The irony is that here it is killing the very spirit that made Kyoto the remarkable place. It is because much of Japan has a lenient attitude to design regulation but not Kyoto.

Therefore the house is conceived as a simple container with the private spaces which lodged almost randomly within. But the view in all directions of the randomness is orchestrated. In this composition, there are three primary elements at work. The main external walls which is running in the east and the west, the private volumes which is overlapping and the bridging and the resultant void space is extending above the LDK. On the main terrace, the main living, dining, kitchen area on the first floors is opens which are facing the garden to the east and allowing the classical indoor or the outdoor living, and the ceiling height in this area is varies from 2.5 meters to 7.5 meters. By move through this area, the client can clearly perceive the three primary elements.

The building is bridged by the two main bedrooms and their north or south is facing the walls of the glass which is allows the external cladding to continue into the rooms which is consist of  one white plaster and one black timber. A large internal window which is found in the bathroom on the second floor is able to overlooking the garden to the east. While the guest room on the third floor is pushes straight out to the west. Two minor terraces which are spatially overlapped are placed beside and below the bedroom.

On the third floor is found the second lounge area which is just a floor slab. A viewing platform that a bridge the main void and it is allows the sweeping views of the city to the east. The vertical views to the sky are allowed by the two top-lights. The house is clad externally in traditional materials of the burnt cedar which is finished with a clear lacquer and the white plaster. The garage door of this house is facing to the street which is to the west. It is fully camouflages as a wall of the horizontal louvers which is continues up to form the railing for the second floor terrace.

But this is the fluidity of the resultant void spaces and the curved that are connecting the stairways which is finally let the house go freely. In this house project there are many different kinds of spaces and the connections which are create an extremely ‘socialized’ kind of the environment.
