Skyhole is a minimalist house located in Shiga, Japan, designed by Alphaville. The building is an atelier and residence for a couple of painter and a designer. It is a space to spend their whole day with their only son and will be used to regularly exhibit works as a gallery. Therefore, the atelier and
the residence will be used multi-dimensionally by shifting boundaries depending on usages. In order to house various activities, extra air volume and
spatial intonations were sought. By distorting the inside of one big volume, the architects searched for
a vibrating space that responds to the weight of activities.
