Outside-In House

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

A family house „Outside In“ by japanese architect Takeshi Hosaka is surely impossible to miss. It stands out and proves, that there is a valid alternative to living in traditional homes. The conceptional intent of the autor – to bring the outside world into the interior, was clearly a success. The construction began in june 2010 and was completed nearly 10 months later.

Behind a transparent movable wall is a garden, which serves as a dining area. The building has only one floor with maximum height of 3.4 m and an irregularily structured roof. Between the gables which define the inner space are light-shafts which are primary sources of lighting for the whole interior. The concrete shell is in contrast with wood used for the built-in furniture.
