In its most basic for, the House H by Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects can be considered a pitched-roof home. It would, however, undervalue the abode to stick with such a plain description, for the design is discernibly singular and wonderfully lighthearted.
The creative team filled the generic house-shaped shell with a collection of full-height and nook spaces to produce an open concept living environment with many different niches and areas to accommodate more specific activities. What separates many of these spaces are Y-shaped posts and piers that double as partitions when drywalled at the top.
Platforms and cantilevered floors bring rhythm and variety into interiors that are otherwise kept simple with white paint and pale woodgrain textures. Quirky arrangements of abstract shapes and the provision of oblique views of rooms both up and down must make the House H an incredibly playful place to live.
