Uyokanzaka's House
4-chome Mita, Minato-ku, Tokyo



A two-family house built on a narrow land facing Gyorinzaka. The back of the site is within the precincts of Uoai-ji Temple.
The floor is composed of a parent household on the first floor and a second-floor family on the second and third floors.
In each room, the height of the ceiling is changed, and the rooms are three-dimensionally connected by stairs.
As a result, a lack of gaze and different scales are created, and the expansion and change are contained in the limited space.
The main living room is open to the side of Gyokuji Temple, and has a unique view.
