Angular Wooden Bihoro House in Japan Used as a Model For Ecological Housing
Along with its raised earth floor that connects the home’s three volumes, timber on the interior and exterior gives this home its natural feel. Daylighting floods through a tall window, somtimes giving the untreated wood a golden glow. The two-storey design is supposed to accommodate new additions as the family grows, while a garden outside ensures that everyone who visits will be fed yummy home-grown vegetables. Japan’s Ministry of Environment considers the home, which sits on a verdant plot a model worth emulating, and we have to agree.
