Located in Tokyo, Japan, this family home was designed Torafu Architects to maximize natural light in the space.
Constructed as a single-family house, made of cast concrete with high ceilings, skylights in the roof fill the open plan living space with light, whilst the sloping lines of the roof subtly create different areas within the property.
The roof not only lets in light and provides cover from rain but, on the inside, gives the space a moderate separation. The brightness and softness of light differs according to season and time of day, which changes the look of the place. The windows on the roof cut out the sky and constantly project the changes of the nature.
