House in Tamatsu
By Ido Kenji Architectural Studio -

Moreover, one of two walls rotated 14 degrees on the plan of the second floor is also inclined to the vertical plane, and the part which overlaps the stairs is turned up, and resembles origami or a facet. This inclined wall frees people's feeling by deviation from the norm, simultaneously the sense of touch of the degree of inclination and the light to reflect of that inclination cause a new physical sense. The building’s white box is completely different from the building of the neighborhood. It is the appearance which the cylindrical volume of the second floor rotated 14 degrees penetrates into the building. Box-shaped cantilevered stairs are floating in the void.
