N-House in Fukuoka, Japan by Uchida Takahisa Architect Design Office

Cantilevered closets

The site is located on the soft ground near the lower basin of the big river. The client of this house decided to build one-storied house because the site area is wide enough, but it was necessary to reduce the foundation area because of the construction budget. So I arranged closets in the outer periphery, and attached them by the cantilevering structure.
