A House With Perforated Brick Walls By Ryo Matsui Architects
- Charmaine Li
Designed by Ryo Matsui Architects, ‘Rebirth’ is a guesthouse with a unique perforated brick facade. During the day, the building looks like it has no windows, but in fact, they have been covered by a perforated screen and can only be seen at night when the interiors are illuminated. Formerly a storehouse, the architect redesigned the building after it was partially destroy during Japan’s 2011 earthquake.
