‘YSY’ By Auau In Seto, Japan

Japanese Home Series –  N0. 36

Nagoya-based studio Auau has completed ‘ysy’, a two storey residence in Seto, Japan.

Bound by a jagged road on one side and a densely populated forest on another, the project sits on a small hill and features an asymmetrical form that complements the physical conditions of the site.

Finished in a matte-white material, the house is wrapped in a shell-like skin that is pushed and pulled from the main volume to create a dynamic identity.

By manipulating the verticality of the interior, the openness and privacy of each segment is coordinated.
