Situated in a quiet residential area overlooking the inland Sea in Hiroshima, Japan, the Toda House responds to a firm desire to creatively capture the local view. Placing the home on stilts, the architect solves the issue of peeking over the neighbors. The nature of the building also allows for privacy in a tight environment. The home is raised, giving it an almost bird's nest like stance, and strikes a pretty picture on the landscape too. [Arch Daily]
