As ‘unlivable’ as this space looks, you can’t but appreciate the strength of the architecture and daring openness of the house. Designed by Yuusuke Karasawa Architects and known as the S House, according to the Coolist: it is built for an academic client, one who has spent his years studying the networking of space and nature, and how humans interface with the space around them. The design of this home is a practice in the client’s studies, a philosophical execution of his life’s work.
The first and most obvious dilemma in such a space is that there is almost no privacy whatsoever except probably in the bathroom. But then again, this is home to someone who is unconventional in his views.
Nonetheless, we can’t but appreciate the remarkable design and the beautiful overlapping in the many levels of the house.
