Gallery: Beautiful Transparent Garden House in Tokyo Can’t Leave Nature...

 
Wood wool and insulating glass help further the building's energy efficiency

It might seem like glass walls might steam the home’s inhabitants, but a nifty circulation box placed between the two cubes ensures that this beautiful “garden house” is nice and naturally ventilated. Daylighting isn’t a problem either, although nifty blinds help to diffuse the harsher rays without disrupting the exterior/interior continuity. In addition to all that, insulating glass and wood wool improve the building’s energy efficiency. Living inside doesn’t always entail leaving nature at the front door!
