Where form meets function

Japanese firm Kenji Yanagawa Architects has designed a home around the owner’s Porsche 911. Living spaces are organized in succession around a central void that allows views of the car from all levels. At the back of the residence is the music room, kitchen and bedroom areas are stacked vertically, accessible by stairs to the larger proportion of the house consisting of the living room, and bathroom. Air and light flood the entire space from the openings in the roof and glass walls toward the street. Cantilevered terraces push the corrugated aluminum envelope flush with neighboring buildings while acting as a buffer, providing privacy between the habitable space and public front.
