The Taishido house is located in the densely populated Taishido district, west of Tokyo from where it also gets its name. The clients are a young family that wanted a home for them and their pet car. The car is in this case like a member of the family so it obviously needed a room of its own. As a result, the house includes a garage that has been painted bright pink. It’s a very contrasting image when compared with the grey stucco façade.

The grey was not the clients’ first choice but it was a compulsory color in the area. The residence has an asymmetrical design which only makes it even more eye-catching and beautiful. It’s a contemporary structure with a complex and beautiful interior. The interior is divided into rooms of various sizes that are divided over three floors. The family also has a pet cat. That’s why the architects also had to built a series of steps for the cat where it can freely move between the room. This indeed is a house for the whole family.{found on archdaily}
