Gorgeous Greenhouse Attics
The House in Yamasaki is Capped with Little Light-Filled Abodes

By: Amelia Roblin (Superstar) Sep 6, 12

As you observe the House in Yamasaki, you might think to yourself what a shame it is that roofs are typically such unfortunate sunlight barriers. This delightful domicile in Hyogo, Japan, opens your eyes to the possibilities of a more permeable building strategy.

The ground floor of the dwelling is nestled 2.5 feet underground for a slightly sunken scheme. Here, one will find the kitchen, the sitting room and the bulk of the communal spaces. There is no shortage of broad rectangular windows that settle flush with the surface of the soil, but the majority of the natural illumination descends from the translucent structures overhead.

Yo Shimada left gaping openings in the ceiling that provide access to the bedrooms and bathrooms up top. The upper story of the House in Yamasaki is quite private, yet the polycarbonate film walls and pitched roofs surrender completely to the bright rays above.
