Takeshi Hosaka's Inside-Out House is a cubic home that blurs the boundaries between interior and exterior spaces. This beautiful family home in Katsushika, Tokyo features simple, uncluttered interiors that are flooded with natural light and filled with living plants and trees.
The Inside-Out House measures 980 square feet divided into two levels and a terrace, and it welcomes all types of living creatures. Sliding  floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a big entrance door creates a flexible space that can be adjusted to provide more or less privacy. Sometimes an interior patio area, sometimes a front yard,
The home’s ‘inside=out’ patio can serve as an interior courtyard or a front yard – and it even features a happy tree growing up from the ground. The master bedroom gets lots of natural light, and the central isle can be either indoors or outdoors thanks to its sparkling sliding windows. The Inside-Out House allows its inhabitants  to live immersed in nature while being sheltered and protected by its minimalist cubic form.
