This home designed by Jun Igarashi Architects Inc. of Japan is a small home that utilized the concept of a loft to organize the space. It is a seemingly small home (approx. 1,000 – 1,200 sq ft, not much is written about the house) that is able to encompass all the necesities of modern living in an open, un-inhibiting space. Its exterior is wrapped in a translucent material (unknown) that gives off a soft glow at night, much like a lantern, and allows the space to flood with light in the daytime. The unusual feature of this home is that there are almost no walls, instead the architect treated spaces that needed enclosure, such as the mechanical space, as volumes slotted into the main space which allowed that volume to act as a partition.
