japanese architect tomohiro hata has recently completed 'complex house', a single family residence 
in nagoya, japan. inhabitants of this dwelling are offered unique sight lines through the voids created 
by a series of alternating pitched roofs. the exterior contains minimal penetrations at street level and 
is clad with metal sheets in standing seam fashion, a technique characterized by slightly overlapped 
parallel strips. 

an upper level corridor is positioned under the roof's bottom chord, linking the bedrooms with the 
children's playrooms. acting as a spine between each end of the house, the corridor borders two open 
air courtyards filled with plants and a patio. enclosed with square windows, unobstructed views through 
the spaces, from one interior room to the next.
