Nomura 24 House, Angular residential property that located in ?saka, Japan, was designed by Antonino Cardillo architect. Nomura 24 House by Antonino Cardillo is a medium-sized abode split over two levels on a hill. Located on a trapezoidal plot in a suburb in the district of Hy?go, the wooden residence overlooks ?saka bay and sports whitewashed walls and a sloping pitched roof. A sleeping area comprised of three bedrooms with a bathroom and entrance hall occupies the ground floor whilst the living area is located on the first floor and incorporates a WC, kitchen, patio, dining area, sitting room and Japanese room (Washitsu).
Formally, in plan, the two longer, non-parallel sides of the plot define two right-angled systems which find their formal connection on the third side, defining in elevation an incisive, faceted shape. Its diverse surfaces mutate the intensity of the light according to the incidence of the sun. Inside, on the first floor, a large polygonal living room with seven sides possesses the inexact quality of certain medieval Italian piazzas, on whose sides the openings – now windows, now doorways – describe multiple directions of aspect and travel.
