The author of the linked blog post makes some interesting observations about this house in Japan.  First, the house is so precise you can’t tell if the images are actual photos or renderings.  This is the hyperreality we are living in – one cannot tell if an image is real or simulation any longer.  I’ve had clients think photos are renderings!   The house takes on the character therefore of a “non-place”.

It is impossible to tell how the fencing is detailed.  It is reduced to simple vertical lines.  Both the exterior and interior make use of “folding” planes.

Design by Kubota Architects.
