This Japanese family home by FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects is arranged as a series of framed spaces, with the ground floor dominated by an art gallery and workspace. Occupying a corner site in a residential area of Japan’s Shiga prefecture, the 128-square-metre house was built with a wooden frame. It was designed to express the variety of interior spaces as a series of protrusions and extensions from the walls and roof.

The house is set back from the street with a pale concrete area in front. Shelter is provided at the entrance by an overhanging protrusion from the upper floor.
