Where form meets function

Located in the Chiba Prefecture of Japan, Yamazaki Kentaro’s “Unfinished House” defies residential norms with an interior that fosters zero privacy. Corridors, bedrooms and staircases are completely open — even the bathroom is walled with clear glass. The bare, open space was intentionally designed to unify the family occupants by forcing them to interact. The name of the residence also derives from the unpainted plywood and exposed frames that add to the structure’s skeletal nature. It seems as though the place would work better as a studio or storage space than a habitable home, but it’s definitely an interesting idea.
