Mascara House by mA-style architects

Feb 4, 2021

Part of this wooden house in Japan by mA-style architects is lifted off the ground and curved like the hull of a boat.

Glass screens on opposite sides of the living room separate the level floor surface from the curved outer edges, creating balconies that double up as sun loungers. Positioned at the building's centre, the room is sandwiched between a pair of narrow two-storey wings that contain the other rooms of the two-bedroom family home.

A kitchen and dining room are located in the east wing, where a ridged wooden ceiling arches up around the edges of the children's bedroom above. The master bedroom and bathroom occupy the two floors of the opposite wing, which is only just wide enough to fit a double bed inside. Entrances to the house are positioned on both sides of this wing and lead in through a concealed porch.
