Noriyoshi Morimura Architects & Associates designed the ‘edge house II’, a single family home in Kyotanabe, Kyoto, Japan. Created to establish a constant and casual relationship with the exterior environment, the ‘edge house II’ features four wings that are each exposed to the outdoors. Two intersecting axis define the overall structure of the residence, inside the home the living room, kitchen and bathroom lie on the short vertical axis while the bedrooms and tatami room are positioned perpendicular, serving as a backdrop to the home. Fully glazed walls enclose the structure, contrasting the rough and pure concrete surfaces on the front of each wing. The glass used in the design of the house aims to create a sense of connection and voyeurism in both the inhabitants and passerby. Check out more images of the residence below, and as always, let us know what you think?
