The 'Patio' House by Yaita Associates Has Plenty of Space for Fresh Air

The Patio House in Japan is perfect for those who like to get a taste of fresh air without wandering too far from home. Designed by Yaita Associates, the house features a large courtyard at the center, with a concrete fence going around the outside of the home for extra privacy.

Considering how busy it can get in this part of Japan, the architects did a great job of allowing for an open space for residences while still providing the perfect amount of privacy. This way individuals can still enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of their own piece of architecture. Moreover, each level of the house overlooks this courtyard section, allowing for natural light to seep in. Photo Credits: designboom, yaita-associates
