Scooped Suburband Dwellings
The Y House Looks Like the Carved Remainder of a Rectangular Residence

The Hideyuki Nakayama Architects were certainly thinking outside of the box when they designed the Y House in Hiroshima, Japan. Despite the fact that the slender city plot has a straight street front, the eccentric abode was sculpted to cut away from this rigid geometry to seemingly extend the facade.

A consequence of this design decision delivers a uniqueness to the interior of the structure, introducing expansive curvatures to the walls and hollowing out some pretty unconventional open plan spaces. To complement the arc shape of the home’s one expressive wall is a sharply sloped roof, dramatizing the inside and the outside of the Y House. A coat of bleached white paint was applied to the building since its form alone is sufficiently striking.
