DESIGN: The Transparent House

Well… this could get awkward. Try living in this transparent house located in Tokyo, Japan! Known as “House NA”, it offers plenty of daylight, however no privacy. 

The 914 square-foot transparent house was built by Sou Fujimoto Architects and is associated with the concept of living within a tree.

“The intriguing point of a tree is that these places are not hermetically isolated but are connected to one another in its unique relativity. To hear one’s voice from across and above, hopping over to another branch, a discussion taking place across branches by members from separate branches. These are some of the moments of richness encountered through such spatially dense living,” says Sou Fujimoto.
