Sensation-Promoting Abodes

The Sense Home by Kazutoshi Imanaga Appeals to Sight, Smell and Sound

— October 12, 2012 — Art & Design
The Sense Home was built to appeal to all of the senses, hence its name. As Arch Daily aptly puts it, it concentrates "not only [on] 'seeing' but also [on] 'hearing' the sound of water, 'smelling' the greenery and 'feeling' the breeze in the garden, the warmth of the sunshine and the volume of the air." The Sense Home might be a very modern space to live in, but it brings people's attention to some of the things that are at once little and important.

Designed by architects Kazutoshi Imanaga, the Sense Home is located in Tokyo, Japan. It melds the outdoors with the indoors through a transparent wall for a truly immersive experience on a daily basis.
Trend Themes
1. Multisensory Architecture - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Develop architectural designs that prioritize appealing to all five senses, creating immersive experiences for occupants.
2. Biophilic Design - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Integrate natural elements and greenery into interior spaces to enhance the connection between humans and nature.
3. Transparent Interiors - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Explore the use of transparent walls and materials to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces, fostering a sense of openness and connection.
Industry Implications

2. Interior Design - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Integrate biophilic design elements and strategies to create interior spaces that promote well-being and enhance overall sensory experiences.
3. Home Automation - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Develop smart home technologies that can dynamically adjust lighting, sound, and scent within living spaces to create personalized multisensory environments.
