The Noh House was built for a Noh performer within a quiet residential area in Tokyo. The traditional Japanese musical drama has been performed for over 700 years, and the Noh stage is composed of a main stage and a bridge (runway) that connects to a backstage. While meeting the client’s functional requirements such as daily living spaces and a Noh rehearsal room, Koji Tsutsui Architect & Associates wanted to incorporate the soul of Noh into the architecture.

The rehearsal room is also a Japanese tearoom, which is done in traditional Japanese finishes such as a calligraphy-ink wall, traditional quince tree flooring, silver Japanese alcove, concrete ceiling & shoji screen and lures one into a deep meditation.  Save this picture!© Masao Nishikawa This rehearsal room located at the top of the house and the living spaces at the bottom are connected by a stair, which gradually rises through the double height space of the living room. The house is a simulacrum of Noh stage set up vertically where the daily routine of climbing up a stair gradually becomes a ritualistic walk on the runway towards the Noh stage. The soul of Noh performer is materialized into architecture.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaProject gallerySee allShow lessEroding the Edge: Urban Landscaping in Kyiv Competition / INDEX ArchitectureArticles’Groundbreaking Women in Construction’ ConferenceArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Noh House / Koji Tsutsui Architect & Associates Save this picture!© Masao Nishikawa+ 10 Share CopyHouses•Japan Architects: Koji Tsutsui Architect & Associates Area Area of this architecture project Japan Noh House / Koji Tsutsui Architect & AssociatesSave this projectSaveNoh House / Koji Tsutsui Architect & Associates “COPY” Area:  162 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeKoji Tsutsui Architect & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesJapanPublished on May 08, 2011Cite: “Noh House / Koji Tsutsui Architect & Associates” 08 May 2011.
