Architects KAGAWA TAKANORI and TAPPEI ITO of SPACESPACE have created a residential project in TOKYO called the Long Tall House.

The house of a young married couple is on a strip of land subdivided for sale (about 4m*16m). It adjoins two paths at north and south sides, and locates on a very old retaining wall which runs along the north path and forms 3.5m height cliff. The path were too narrow to comply the current regulations, so we needed removing a part of the wall so that it could be widened- by SPACESPACE

The project was completed in 2006 but has not been widely published and it makes me dream!
