Final Wooden House by Sou Fujimoto Architects

The Final Wooden House by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto is a house that brings up a lot of questions. It asks if you are adventurous, if you’re up for something different, if you’re out-of-the-box.

Because this playful weekend home in Kumamoto, Japan is as atypic as it gets. Designed to highlight the versatility of lumber, the wooden house is formed by 350mm beams of cedar which overlap at certain lengths to create and reveal small nooks, ceilings, walls and floors.

“I wanted to create an ultimate wooden architecture. I thought through this bungalow, which can be considered as a small and primitive house, it was possible to do a primitive and simultaneously new architecture. A square profile cedar is piled endlessly. At the end of the process appears a prototypical place before architecture became architecture.” – Sou Fujimoto
