Toda House by Kimihiko Okada

This Hiroshima house has had the unfortunate affect of making our own places feel like a pile of sad damp cereal boxes. This incredible project is the work of Kimihiko Okada. Perched literally on a series of pedestals, this curved structure is elevated above its neighbours, showing off as it rightfully should. With a feel of 50s America about it, it overlooks sea, city and mountain. We’d spend most of our time looking inwards, just walking around leering at the place itself.

The building is effectively a long winding corridor, widening and narrowing at various points, it’s lucky residents have used the space perfectly. Spoon and Tomago tell us more.
