An Elevated House With A Garden Underneath By Kimihiko Okada
- Jessica Jungbauer
Japanese architecture studio Kimihiko Okada designed the ‘Toda House‘, an elevated home consisting of an unconventionally shaped slab perched on angular poles. Located in a residential area in Hiroshima, the building’s unique form offers stunning views of the surrounding area. “Like a bird’s nest, it called up architecture’s primary function of relief from disturbance,” the architects say on the idea behind the unique concept. Additionally, the space below can be used as a small garden.
