House with Tiny Pool by Shunichiro Ninomiy

Japanese architect Shunichiro Ninomiy of NRM-Architects Office has used an atrium and small pool of water to admit light indirectly to the ground floor of this east-facing home in Osaka, Japan.

Called House With Tiny Pool,  the two-storey wooden structure is enclosed with a high-walled courtyard preventing direct glare into the ground floor.

Sunlight enters through large windows on the first floor, where a white wall bounces it down through the atrium to the lower storey.

Rooms on the second floor are set back from this facade to prevent direct sunlight.

The small pool of water is visible from all rooms in the house.

    Plans please. The scale of the elements seems more commercial than residential to me, a bit clumsy. Not enough information to judge the kitchen.

    That pool is so cute!

  • rodger

    a restrained project that verges on the banality when viewed during the day but transforms in evening into something much more etherial because the lighting successfully creates new spacial effects.
