2x2 GRIDS
This is a house built on a site tightly enclosed by buildings in every direction. The couple that commissioned it requested a brightly lit space with a sense of openness, while taking into consideration crime prevention. The plan is arranged as 2x2 grids, organized in four layers of tiered boxes partitioned into individual masses of about seven tatami-mats (14m2) in size. Masses with differing characteristics of function and place are adjacent above, below, right, and left, connected so as to make a space without dead-ends. On each level there must be a mass without a floor; awareness is drawn to the two floating terraces on the uppermost level, and one's gaze escapes to the sky.
