Some 29 square skylights have been incorporated in the roof of this small single family house providing its residents with an abundance of unobstructed natural light in spite of house’s densely built-up surroundings. Located in Japan’s second largest city, Yokohama, the 85-square-meters single-storey development has been realised in 2011 by an award-winning Japanese architectural practice Takeshi Hosaka Architects.

More about the project:

 

‘This is a house in which residents live under natural lighting from the sky.
The site is surrounded by many buildings. Light from 29 skylights (approx 700mm square) installed in the roof illuminate the room as soft light diffused through the curved acrylic ceiling plates. The direct light falling from the skylights appear on the curved acrylic ceiling as a warped square. This house was named “Daylight House.” Daylight does not simply indicate light from the sun, but refers to the beautiful light throughout the day. The house provides a rich experience of the beauty of the light over 24 hours.’
