Peaking Triangular Abodes

The ‘ZYX House’ in Tokyo is Built on Limited Land But Offers

— June 18, 2012 — Art & Design
Tokyo-based Naf Architect & Design are at it again with an amazing residential space design entitled ‘ZYX House.’

The ZYX House is a private multi-level home located in the heart of Tokyo, Japan. With Toyko’s population at 26 million and continually on the rise, there’s no surprise that urban space is becoming more rare. That didn’t stop Naf Architect & Design as the duo created a stunning dwelling that sits in a rather small lot.

The home was designed for a single woman who needed a space where she could accommodate family and friends. A special feature of the ZYX House is a peaking window feature that’s in the shape of an elongated triangle. Ample space is provided as well as a vast amount of natural lighting that flows in.
