Azuma House

Row House in Sumiyoshi (住吉の長屋, Sumiyoshi no Nagaya), also called Azuma House (Japanese 東邸), is a personal residence in Sumiyoshi-ku, Osaka, Japan. It was designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando in his early career. It was designed without exterior windows reflecting the desire of the owner to feel that he was not 'in Japan', but to compensate for lost light, an interior courtyard with cross walkway was created.
