Monk's living quarters in Osaka , Japan

YYAA Yoshihiro Yamamoto Architects Atelier en tant que Architectes.

This is a kuri (monk's living quarters) in the old town of Osaka. For their daughter with serious handicaps , and their local supporters, the new salon was installed by connecting from the street to the main hall of the temple . To protect their daughter from direct sunlight, and to divide the inner rooms and outer graves , the first floor is closed and light is taken from the big high side light. By using modern but traditional materials such as Shikkui (Japanese stucco) , Yakisugi (burned cedar) , and Kawara (Japanese tile) , this house is harmonized with the city where old and new buildings coexist.
