Curved Little House

Studio Velocity as Architects

Little shop of 41㎡ in Nagoya city. The site has an elongated shape with a width of about 9m and a depth of 20m.

 

While the front road is relatively wide, with a sidewalk, one might get a feeling of oppression due to the small size of the site surrounded as it by shops and houses of from 2 to 3 stories.

 

The required elements were spaces for parking 2 cars, a space for drying laundry, and a space for the shop.

 

The building has to stand at the back of the site since the frontage is not of sufficient width to permit a K-turn and the front portion is occupied by the parking area.

 

One can seldom escape from such approaches when the building is a shop with parking spaces. A good example of this would be the convenience store two lots from the site.
