    Love Japanese houses. Although I can’t figure out how some of the spaces here are to be used in a residence, such as the one with the retractable partitions.

    Makes me think of splinters =/

    Wow, so fascinating… woody to the extreme. Creates a nice and warm interior feeling, though it does feel a bit dark in some areas. I wonder what the railings are about, looks like a design move that the client will remove in 6 months. Overall I’m very charmed by it, nice job.

    Mmmmm… timber.

    The railings are a puzzle. They look like cheap standard items but the railing at the highest level, at the bedroom, defines a very narrow space and is accessible from the bedroom closet!

    i wish japanese people would stop using crummy online translation software for their press releases. thankfully, a picture's worth a thousand words and all that, but seriously, that shit is whack.

    I would love to see this when the book shelves are stacked and the home is furnished

    The quality of the text should be comparable to the quality of the projects. This is a very interesting house and unfortunately the text doesn't make justice to the concept.
