House in Muko by FujiwaraMuro

  • Roadside loses its banality when applied to FujiwaraMuro’s House in Muko, Japan. The single-family house in Kyoto, Japan lets the curve of the street embrace its form, and the fan shape of the residence presents a unique lighting opportunity. Just as how a bow window opens itself up to the daily path of the sun, the façade of House in Muko does the same, though with white, wooden planes intersecting the house’s volume. As a result, the interior receives nearly all diffuse light, which sheds a natural glow on the wooden interiors and beige furniture. The bright, warm spaces within are a haven from the urban grid just one step outside the front door.
