B House by Anderson Anderson Architecture

B House represents a sustainable design that remains flexible and receptive to fancy technology for a “greener” operation, but still implements modest means to achieve the same goal. The residence in Shimasaki, Japan is a collaborative work from Anderson Anderson Architecture and Nishiyama Architects. Its wooden interiors are surrounded by a wrapping veranda, with columns outlining the stony base, which mirrors the construct of the historic Kumamoto Castle in the distance. The horizontal length of B House allows almost all of the rooms to have a view of the outside. Panels and screens help divide the interior space, the white softly diffusing the light that streams from the glazing along the length of the building’s southern face.
