Featuring a split personality facade, the Transustainable House in Tokyo is meant to provide "a new solution for sustainable residential architecture that is able to evolve over time," as stated on DesignBoom.
The aim for the house was to make the most of the smaller area of land, so each room is made with a specific purpose in mind. One half of the house is closed in, with the other opening up to the outside with a mesh-like material placed around the outside. This is ideal for still providing a certain amount of privacy for the owners, while keeping them connected to the exterior environment. What's interesting too is just how seamlessly these two areas are connected, instead of being cut off into separate sections.
