S-House is a project designed in 2013 by the practice of Yuusuke Karasawa Architects and it is located in Oomiya, Saitama, Japan, featuring a complex and contemporary geometry to capture the various activities and offer diversity to the inhabitants.

There are two floors with a surface of 50 square meters crossing over on a site with a surface of 100 square meters and each level was quartered. The eaves at the center of the ceiling height intertwine with the elevated floors and give shape to the complex network with the elevated floors continuing with a diagonal wall.

The floors continue on the upper level for the intricate elevation to be completed and the interior follows the same complicated design through a void looking toward the opposing space and diagonally entwining floors. The sense of depth and space are disturbed through the geometry so that the distances become hard to determine and the designers explain that their project was an attempt to capture ”the various activities borne out of today’s informational society, where diversity and order are being demanded at the same time.”
