Japanese architecture comes to dazzle us again today with a minimal clean home created to respect the inhabitants privacy and to take advantage of the potential its location has to offer. mA-style architects designed the ‘Light Walls House‘, a home which revolves around the light element that is filtered into the house through a series of wooden beams, providing a sense of security, protection from the surrounding urban environment and a playful delicate play with lights and shadows.

“Considering each box as a house, the empty spaces in between can be seen as paths or plazas, and remind us of a small town enclosed in light. The empty spaces, which cause shortening or elongating of distances between people, are intermediate spaces for the residents, as well as intermediate spaces that are connected to the outside when the corridor is open, and these are the image of a social structure that includes a variety of individuals.”

Even if the exterior does not say much, the entire home has been conceived and focused on its interior composition, a home created for its inhabitants and not for the urban site.

You can observe the clean minimal wooden lines and the way the white boxes which separate the spaces do not touch the integrity of the beamed roof.

The pure geometry of the wooden beams creates a dazzling architectural sculptural effect.

The filtered light permits even the smallest of spaces to be lit properly and seem open and airy.

The entire interior has been treated in wooden panels to accentuate the feeling of comfort and coziness.

Their layered scheme explains the entire concept of filtering the light and dividing the spaces into four individual capsules.

  1. For some, but not for all.
    Pleasant prison concept. Include a small garden area where plants can grow, and you MIGHT have something here.
    Also, how does one block light/heat as seasons change?
    Sterile & closed. Good for hermits. All the BS PC language in the world can’t save this depressing structure.

    The Japanese are much much better at incorporating nature and living spaces. Interesting experiment, but a total fail.
