Located in the Japanese capital, House Tokyo by A.L.X. Architects is an all-white abode that is made to resemble a traditional teepee shape. Dynamic and structurally sound, this architecture piece seems heavy in volume during the day, but turns light and transparent in the night.

Manipulated with varying light sources, this alluring space has mystery. When lit at night, the home is transparent allowing individuals to faintly see in. Revealing main structural elements and emitting a ghostly glow, this contemporary residence uses light to create an atmospheric mood.

When inside the home, inhabitants are greeted with angular rays of light giving the minimalist interior some visual interest. Presenting viewers with an element of surprise, this home leaves little room for privacy during late hours, unless inhabited by a design-savvy night owl.
