House in Motoyawata by Naya Architects

This house by Japanese firm Naya Architects is so closely surrounded by apartment blocks that its walls have to lean away from them.

Named House in Motoyawata, the building has double doors inset on a small first floor terrace to let more light past the neighbouring block and into the living room.

Wooden ceiling beams are left exposed inside the house, while a spiral staircase connects the two storeys.

Providing a home for a family of four, the house is located on the outskirts of Tokyo and has bedrooms on its ground floor and an open-plan living room upstairs.
