Mihara House (Project)   Tokyo, 1918

Only two conceptual drawings for this design for the Mihara family survive. The structure's small size would seem to indicate that it was to be a guesthouse or a second home, rather than a primary residence.

The large gatehouse, which takes its cue from Japanese temple design, bears a striking resemblance to Arata Endo's earlier design for the Meiji Shrine Treasure House.

The Mihara House was never built.  (KS)
