Case Study House by Kenji Yanagawa

Nestled on a hillside in Kurakuen in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan is the Case Study house by architect Kenji Yanagawa. Due to the hillside location of the house, it boasts a unique design that is capped off by the ingenious vertical elevator garage that houses the owner’s daily drives, which include a Ferrari, Porsche and a mean looking Honda S2000. Visible from the house’s interior, the elevator shaft pushes the surrounding rooms outwards over the slope. The house boasts an airy, glass-filled design but really, it’s all about that stunning elevator garage.
