House With A Sloping Wall In their Type B and Type F apartments, Moisei Ginzburg and the Stroykom team manipulated ceiling heights to divert volume from sleeping areas to the living area where it could be better appreciated during daytime. Inspired by Hiroyuki Asai's long-forgotten 1971 Mochizuki House, this project attempts the same by manipulating the inclination of the wall separating the day and night areas. The wall is inclined 45° to return exactly half the bedroom volume to the living area. Usable volume is preferable to volume for volume's sake. Bleachers House is a variant that allows a degree of usage for the volume returned.

House With A Sloping Wall In their Type B and Type F apartments, Moisei Ginzburg and the Stroykom team manipulated ceiling heights to divert volume from sleeping areas back to the living area where it could be better appreciated in the daytime. Inspired by a long-forgotten 1970s Japanese house known as House With A Sloping Wall, this project attempts the same by manipulating the inclination of the wall separating the day and night areas. The wall is inclined at 45° and so returns exactly half the bedroom volume back to the living area. Usable volume is preferable to volume for volume's sake. A variation called Bleachers House also allows a degree of use for the volume returned.
