‘Fujitsubo’ (barnacle) by Yoshihiro Hirotani and Yusaku Ishida of Archivision is a copper clad house is the Omotesando area of Tokyo. The unique house doesn’t have a lot of windows but the three pinnacles that make up the roof each contain a stunning sky light.

The interior of the copper clad house is all white, ostensibly to make the most of the space and to add light to windowless spaces. A hair and beauty salon are the current copper clad house’s occupants. We wonder if the bronze siding will eventually oxidize and turn green. Stats for Copper Clad Houses Trending: Older & Chilly
