Swiss Motif in a Japanese House

Heidi House is an extremely low cost studio and office space located in a residential area of Tokyo. Long window openings were made in the plywood sheets in between the structural frame. The long thin nature of the structural frame inspired the ‘Tyrollean’ cutout shape. The house has caused quite a stir in the neighbourhood, but the important thing is everyone seems to smile when they walk past!
