Parabola House is a family home in Tokyo designed by Japanese architect Yasuhiro Yamashita of Atelier Tekuto. The site is located in a quiet residential area surrounded by nature. 6m in width and 27m in length, it is a long and narrow site, which has been constructed 3m above road-level so that on clear days, it enjoys views of Mount Fuji.
As the client’s family spends the most part of the day in the living room, this room has been situated on the top floor, which benefits from scenic views.
Minimal design and a parabolic ceiling on the top floor are the building’s distinctive features. Splashes of colour provide a contrast to the undulating white surroundings, giving rhythm to the space.
