Sou Fujimoto Architects has designed The Next Generation House within a small but functional 13’ x 13’ x 13’ cube. The house looks as if it was built from strategically placed Jenga blocks.
The blocks are actually cedar logs laid deliberately to create spaces for sleeping, eating, seating and storage. Spaces were left to house modern angled glass as windows. The weekend home boasts views gorgeous of the River Kuma in Kumakura, Japan.
I’m just thinking you have got to watch your head in this place, with all the sharp corners. With a little softening up (some cushions and area rugs) this would be a really cool get-away house for the weekend.
