Ryusenji House by Tomoaki Uno Architects in Nagoya, Japan, has no windows on its elevations and is dimly lit by two light wells that penetrate through the building’s bare concrete structure.
The two-storey house in Nagoya contains just three rooms; a living room and bathroom on the ground floor and one bedroom on the half-sized first floor. Aside from the skylights, the building has no windows in the double-height living room, creating a space that is dimly-lit. The stark interior concrete walls continue outside where the only opening is a solid metal entrance door on the side.
"The inside is dark in these photographs, but that expression varies from one day to another," — Tomoaki Uno
