River Side House by Mizuishi Architect Atelier
From Designers: This is a very small house built on the triangle site which the river and the way were crossed and made to the acute angle. For the dead-end road, it became a plan in various regulations for obtaining special permission.
The building is the form that cut an acute angle part on a triangle plan derived from the site. Furthermore, it got the maximum volume of hip roof of three planes in restriction of setback-line.
Although the level 0 floor was a private space, it limits for dividing with the curtain of a race in the door, stairs, storage, etc. except for a bathroom. It enabled it to feel a spread. The level+1 floor is devided into small areas by structural narrow walls,being connected with one by the ridgeline of a roof. So there are different open feelings and the relations with the river each.
