Description Change this

The Suguiyama House is built in raw concrete and made up by a superposition of volumes pierced with windows of different shapes arranged to underline symmetries. As a simple volume with a central squared plan which is composed by two floors. That underline the presence of different floors from the outside what is visible in the Suguiyama House, a building with a more complex shape where the leitmotif of the ziggurat is visible in both the roof and on one side of the construction.
