Fujiwaramuro Architects Design a Unique Circular Home in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan
By Magaly • Feb 17, 2017
This peculiar home built by Fujiwaramuro Architects in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan enjoys beautiful wooden walls on its exterior, as well as a planted walkway outside of the home. The home’s most unique feature is the rounded-shape earthen floor that begins at its garden and continues into the house.
The home, which amongst other things is constructed diagonally, was created for a married couple that wanted the opportunity to enjoy their garden.
In its interior, what most draws our attention is the fact that the walls and the ceiling are all completely covered in different types of wood. This is complemented by the fact that its furnishings, in a simple and modern style, are also made out of wood.
At night its modern lamps, which are perfectly situated within each space, give it a soft light that transmits warmth to a space that is small but very cozy.
The walkway formed by the wide rounded shape seems to invite visitors and residents alike to take a walk to the exterior of the home to enjoy the night-time views of the gardens that will, little by little, change the look of the home as they grow and evolve. From there, we can enjoy the interior of the view, easily and almost completely visible from the outside through strategically designed doorways and windows.
