Japanese architect Kouichi Kimura has designed a unique house in Shiga, Japan, for the owner to host yoga classes. The two-storey house consists of a large block with a smaller one that appears to be slotted on top. The street side has no windows, offering complete privacy from passers-by.
“Linkage between exterior and interior spaces were identified to realise a living space that expands toward outside in terms of visual and sensory aspects. The living room that also serves as the yoga classroom has two openings; it can be used as one unified space together with the courtyard when the sliding doors are wide opened.”
