A Minimal Multi-Level House By Sou Fujimoto

Words

Japanese architecture studio Sou Fujimoto created the ‘House NA’, a minimal house made up of rectangular compartments across various levels. The open structure of the building features individual floor plates, a transparent facade as well as birch wood stairs. On the concept behind it, the architects say: “The white steel-frame structure itself shares no resemblance to a tree. Yet the life lived and the moments experienced in this space is a contemporary adaptation of the richness once experienced by the ancient predecessors from the time when they inhabited trees. Such is an existence between city, architecture, furniture and the body, and is equally between nature and artificiality.”
