Do you think you live too close to your neighbors and wish you had more privacy? Well, for this family, privacy is something with very little importance. This see-through house, called “NA”, is located in a residential district in Tokyo.
The three story family home was designed by Tokyo-based studio Sou Fujimoto Architects and it was the dream home for this family. The architects explain: “They wanted to live like nomads within the house – they had specific plans for each room, and even though the house looks radical, for the clients, it seemed quite natural.”
Designed with a “stack of boxes” in mind, each room of the house offers a small, loosely defined, unique space. These room are each connected by a series of ladders and small stairs and they use curtains to have some sense of privacy.
For this family, having a house made of glass gives them a sense of freedom.
It doesn’t feel safe to me. 🙂
One thing is for sure, the house always feels sunny and bright.
Every space is connected to the next.
This beautiful girl seems to enjoy her space, and that’s what really matters. 🙂
This place seems to make not only the rooms feels connected, but also, the people. You can’t miss anyone. 🙂
The house during the night.
What are your thoughts about this house? Could you live in a house like this? I think it would be a great place to film a movie, but when it comes to live in it, I’ll be completely honest, I need my privacy. 🙂 Bravo to this family for not being afraid of building their dream house, regardless of its uniqueness.
Talking about Japan, my husband and I always talk about visiting it some day. We love the culture and oh my, the food! I love Japanese food and the people! So, expect to see me in Japan some day, eating in every good restaurant I see!
Do you guys have plans for this weekend? I wanted go to the beach with the kids but I just checked the weather and it seems it will rain. We had beautiful weather during the whole week and I assumed the good weather was going to continue. Well, lesson learned… never assume anything, know for sure!
What are you guys going to do? Share… I need new plans! 🙂
Wishing you guys a Blessed weekend. Stay safe!

Interior architecture/design is nice. However, the neighborhood is not one I’d like to have a constant view of. Especially the utility pole in front and all those power lines – not attractive.
One question….why? Why would someone, anyone want to live in such a home? Fool for me all the way. Don’t get it and I am claustrophobic just looking at it. Have a great weekend Luciane!
Tina already asked my question, “Why?” Enough said.
I laughed out loud over Tina’s answer. I feel the same way and I don’t want to be climbing about it as a guest either.
whoa…. it makes me feel weird just looking at the house. It just doesn’t feel right to have everything right out in the open. And what of the bathroom situation? I hated living in the city because of the lack of privacy and the tight spaces… so this home makes me shudder!
Fool. I also hope no females wear a SKIRT in that house on the upper floors. 🙂
Take the kids to the movies this weekend, Luciane! You’ll enjoy it yourself, just sitting for a couple of hours (getting hubby to stay home with the baby!)
Have a good one.
Thank you, Gloria! I love your idea! I’ll see what’s playing now. 🙂
Have a great weekend!

hmmmm……..seems to be like the new phenomena lately of “look at me!”
take it to the countryside people
I couldn’t do it. But look how neat their house is! It seems they at least have accordion screens for night. You find the most interesting houses, Luciane.
I need privacy. I love light and lots of windows during the day, but I close all my curtains as soon as it gets dark. This can be a s late as 10:30 pm in Alberta in the summer. In winter it is dark at 5:00pm and my curtains are closed.
Who would want to look at all those power lines?! yikes.
…not only would i not want to live in such a house…i would not want to live next to…or across from…such a house…i am not interested in your viewing me… and i am certainly not interested in viewing you…fool…
