Recently the Hiroshima based practice Kazunori Fujimoto Architect & Associates realised this weekend home in the resort town Nasu-town, Tochigi Prefecture. Due to the high building density – typical for Japanese residential areas – it is difficult to keep privacy so the architects decided to place almost all openings towards the inner courtyard.

“It is one-room space that has two big windows and a concrete wall. By the two windows the room connected to the outside environment. Closing the white curtains, all symbols as “house” are hidden, and the color and materials that can be seen are limited, still more, the abstract space is filled calm atmosphere.”
