The house was designed after the classic Australian construction which is called the “Queenslander”. It’s basically the main building which is carried by stilts with a motel-like sub base. Yo Shimada of Tato Architects has seen pictures of one of these “Queenslander” buildings and instantly decided that it would be a perfect fit for one of his projects. What I always admire about Japanese architecture is the style everything seem to be made in. Light is always a big part of it and the ability for it to flow through the rooms.
