Shoji Screen House or Shoji House Screen is a minimalist residence located in Osaka, Japan, designed by Yoshiaki Yamashita Architect & Associates. The house is located on a plot of 66 square meters, which is adjacent to a brick wall, and has a facade without windows on both sides to the street.

Due to the fact that there are no windows on the facade, architects have used large Shoji screens to provide natural lighting during the day. The house is located along an alley, and is accessible through an isolated corridor that parallels the existing wall.
