Sky Catcher House By Kazuhiko Kishimoto

The Sky Catcher House designed by Kazuhiko of acca is unlike its name suggests a humble yet compelling one storey appartment building, located in a quiet suburban area in the Kanagawa prefecture of Japan. Despite its very avantgarde style it retains an air of japanese humbleness, blending in perfectly with the neighbouring appartment houses. The facade entirely wrapped in wooden planks, goes without any windows facing outside, keeping the interior a secret to curious passersby. However the wooden floored courtyard is encompassed by floor to ceiling windows, providing ample sunlight throughout the day and the eponymous view to the sky. Have a closer look at it in the gallery above.
