Apr 06, 2021

located on a small hill in japan’s takarazuka city, ‘ho-house’ by kubota architect atelier combines sharp white concrete and frosted glass in its construction. the residence is largely closed off on the street side, while an open-air private courtyard enclosed in the center of the plot brings natural light and air inside. the rooms facing the courtyard are clad in floor-to-ceiling glass in most parts, creating a continuous flow between inside and outside.
