Analysis of a photographer´s weekend house

Authors: General design

Place: Kujykuri Chiba, Japan

Size: 526,97m2

Use: a weekend house

A request from the client, a photographer, was to build a space where light and shadow interplay beautifully. Throughout the day natural light comes into the building from four courtyards. Sometimes it shines against a big wall creating a bright mirror effect. Other times it aims low casting an interesting shadow figure on a courtyard. Playing with light and shadow, this weekend house is forever continually in a state of change.
