Sometimes we feel like hiding our home to get separated from the outer world and here we are talking about the architectural structure that hides the home decorated by glass windows between and behind concrete blocks.
Such elegant Glass Home located in Hiroshima, Japan, was envisioned by Naf architect & design and is totally based on a simple, but eye-catching system of stacking large concrete blocks (each sized 1.0 m x 1.0 m x 1.5m ), reinforced with steel.
This unusual architecture feature ensures privacy and protection from earthquakes- and its interesting appearance can take your breath away. Here is more from the architects: Overall composition of the building consists of roof and transparent glass to enclose interior space with the aforementioned concrete block structure.
There is no roof over the concrete blocks. Therefore rays of the sun pour over the blocks, and the reflection of the light shines inside the house. Furthermore, vines of various flowers will be planted along the block, changing breakwater-like structure to a hill of flower and greenery in the future.
Such an exemplary idea is to totally mesmerizing. Not much to look at from the outside, but very Zen like on the inside. Beautiful, Isn’t it? Have a look at the pictures and you will be able to answer the question.
