Ever get the feeling that you’re being watched? We imagine the residents in this trippy Tokyo house get that feeling often – since the home has hardly any walls.
‘House NA’ is located in central Tokyo and was created by Sou Fujimoto Architects as a home with a difference.
Inspired by the branches of a tree, the living spaces are all connected and the walls that do exist are mostly glass to let the outside world in.
The home, which has a total floor area of 84.9sqm, is spread over multiple levels, so it feels much bigger than it is and what the 53.7sqm site area allows.
The aim of the design was to create interaction between the inhabitants with the city, nature and the sky – and to be always connected with one other, as well.
The intelligent design also uses the floor plan as part of the furniture, meaning people can perch between levels of the house as they spend time in each space and with each other. The levels of the home also become seating and desks and, at times, as a device to segment a separate space.
“The house can be considered a large single-room, and, if each floor is understood as rooms, it can equally be said that the house is a mansion of many rooms,” the architecture studio explains in a press release.
