Design Milk says: "Osaka-based architect Naoko Horibe was given a tall order when she set out to design this particular residence in Naruto-Shi, Tokushima, Japan. First, the property is located in an area that tends to flood during heavy rains. Second, the clients wanted their new home to provide security and privacy, while at the same time having enough space for their children to play and run around. And last, but not least, they asked for the house to have good natural light and air circulation throughout. Needless to say, House in Naruto was no easy task but the final results are well worth the trouble." design-milk.com
