Tucked between Spring and Canal in New York City’s recently rezoned Hudson Square, Renwick Street is a rare blip on the vast urban grid: a small, single-block residential enclave, whose self-generated hush recalls the era of a much more intimate Manhattan.

Dig in the sky in Osaka, Japan by ALPHAVILLE Architects Co.,Ltd.

Digging a hole in the sky

At the center of Osaka, We designed a residence that is composed of three buildings sandwiching two courtyards, so as to bring light  to a narrow site surrounded by neighboring houses on three sides. As each building will hold one-room-sized space on each floor, we decided to connect rooms with tube-shaped corridor and staircase that cross the courtyards. Every room is not divided by doors, but instead is linked by long stretching-shaped entrances. They are loosely connected, but are able to gain appropriate sense of distance for habitation.
