Appreciations towards Tomoaki Uno Architects for providing the following description:


The house was planned on a site near Nagoya Castle. Clients’ main requests were two or more parking spaces and a large terrace where family could enjoy barbecue. Piloti was inevitable from the size of the site. After that, how to secure a large terrace with privacy and a future children’s room for the three young sons was a major issue in this plan.

建筑师将楼梯设置在住宅的中央,以实现最短的连接路径。构成楼梯的木制踏板均是单独由机器加工而成,最终堆叠成一座旋转楼梯,成为住宅中的一处显著存在。 ©Tomoaki Uno

The plan I found placed the stairs in the center of the house for the shortest sequence. Therefore, the staircase is at the center of the house, so it has a more iconic design. One step at a time, the blocks of wood were machined out and piled up into a spiral staircase.

By making the thick walled columns in Piloti and the balconies protruding on the terrace, I created a brutal architecture that can only be made of concrete.
