Katsuhiro Miyamoto thrives on designing dwellings on challenging sites. As we saw in projects previously featured on Archinnovations, the architect carefully composes his projects from the constraint imposed by the surrounding density of the urban landscapes, developing his ideas despite the awkwardness of the site’s shapes and dimensions.

He proposes solutions that possess a powerful in their visual appeal while staying focused on the functional requirements of the house and the creation of user-centric living space.

This project by Japanese Architect Katsuhiro Miyamoto is a great example of construction in a difficult site.

Located in the Japanese city of Takarazuka, the site is a narrow triangle of land surrounded by a densely built neighborhood. The irregular Urban zone was divided in rectangular parcels of land, the site is a secluded lot that is hard to use is left over Katsuhiro Miyamoto describes the site as “heta-ti” (hull land) – fragment of land that is left over. Surmounting the shape of the land, the restrictive regional building code, and a tight budget, the Architect produces a smart spatial organization, layered on two floors and two basements. Making the most of the site, the project is home of a three-generations family of six.

Clover House - Main Entrance







Japanese Architect, Katsuhiro Miyamoto brings us a  smart and well integrated project called the Clover House. With a total built area of 76m2 proves that beautiful things can come in small sizes.


The house is made of two levels; a basement and a first floor. It is spatially defined by three elements, the rectilinear retaining wall in the basement, the external wall of the ground floor, shaped as a square glass box, and most importantly, at the center of the house, curvilinear wall shaped like a cloverleaf 4.6m (15ft) high that emerges from basement to the first floor and help define the different spaces in the house.
