Optical Glass House by Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP // Hiroshima, Japan. Fabricated from long, thin blocks, the huge glass wall forms a lustrous veil, screening out the distractions of the city and enclosing a verdant courtyard garden at the heart of the house.
Nakamura’s Optical Glass House is composed of roughly 6000 glass blocks strung together by stainless steel. Soundproof the façade cancel out external noise while allowing light and air to pass through and revealing only a mosaic of the lush garden inside.
“Don’t throw stones if you live in a glass house.” What an idea – to live in a house made entirely of glass. How long do you think it takes to clean all those windows? Contact the Designer: Santambrogiomilano
