Takeshi Hamada's House D, located in Osaka, brilliantly combines the need for efficient architectural design in Japan with the elegance and beauty of contemporary aesthetics. The design of House D is conceived and executed around the garage, which is just left of center at the front of the house; Takeshi Hamada describes the home as taking an "L" shape around the garage area.

The front of House D has an clean and contemporary aesthetic. The vertical alignment of the wood planks, which serve as a door to the garage, contrasts exceptionally with the horizontal placement of the metallic surface on the front of the entryway to the house.
