Urban Outdoors House by L.D.HOMES

is a minimalist residence located in Hyogo, Japan, designed by . The three-story home is situated in a residential neighborhood consisting mainly of traditional condominiums. The narrow site prevented the architects from opening up the front facade, thus creating an opportunity to create an airy and private deck space within on the second level. In addition, the third floor contains more outdoor space than indoor, and features a wooden bench within a balcony to resemble a small park.
