Incredible House With Tree Shaped Interiors in Tokyo

advertise here

This unusual looking home comes from Mount Fuji Architects Studio and is located in Tokyo, Japan. It was built for a couple in a residential area of the city, even though the architecture manages to separate the project from its urban environment. A first noticeable particularity is the fact that the ceiling is not leveled. One step inside and one can see the reason behind this unique design. Right in the middle of the home there is a giant cylinder resembling a tree stem. Towards the ceiling, this structure begins to fade out turning into a spiral shape, which explains the form of the interesting looking ceiling. The interiors are based on the “Cartesian coordinates system” and have well defined geometrical features. We think the window that the column forms at the beginning of its “transformation” looks highly original, from inside as well as from an exterior angle.-via Arch Daily

    How many trees have been cut in order to built this house! This design in my opinion is totally environment-unfriendly! What’s the point of using too much wood?

    I would like to see it with some furniture other than those odd chairs and such?

    I guess this is more for demonstrating a (tree-)concept. For living in this house the design is rather unpractical, i.e. where is the fridge etc? Who will dust of the higher shelves? Who wants to climb a ladder?

    That house looks like one big shelving unit! No colors and the only features that I can see are the Colums or Pillars. What a strange kitchen design, with the waste for the sink showing below with no cabinets.

    The pictures don’t do much for me. Interesting concept, but I’d live to see it with more furniture…those shelves look so empty.

Bem no meio da casa há um cilindro gigante parecido com um tronco. Para o teto, essa estrutura começa a desaparecer transformando-se em forma de espiral, o que explica a forma interessante no teto.

    wow, look at ALL that shelf space!!!
    it would look nicer if there was more furniture and color in it, though.
