This house is located in a new residential area in Japan. It has 12 small rooms which have different functions divided over two floors. The architect inserted a hexagonal void in the middle of the house: an atrium with a connection to every room. The result is a dynamic and complex interior that provides the experience of being present in all rooms, without losing the possibility of retreating into just one. The walls and floor are only 60 mm thick, made of a wooden structure. Their thinness creates patchwork views throughout the house.
