Intervening in such a small site without endangering the neighboring constructions was a technical challenge. To avoid any earth sliding caused by the pressure of adjacent lots on the north and east side, iron plates nine millimeters (1/4in) thick, were prefabricated and used as both a mold and finishing material. The mold got filled with cement, this way resistance to the gravitationally pressure got resolved.
Katsuhiro Miyamoto has succeeded to transform a small house with a simple layout into a rich spatial experience. The small site and its neighboring lots a real challenge, but the Clover House integrates quite well and positively interacts its surroundings.
The Clover House is located in Nishinomiya, Hyogo, Japan
