House NA, Sou Fujimoto Architects

Many people have dreams of living in a tree house, but trees in a suburb of Tokyo can be hard to find, let alone commandeer for a house. But, possibly this house by Sou Fujimoto Architects comes very close to mimicking what tree house living would be like, minus the tree. On first appearance this house of glass boxes appears the furthest thing away from our childhood imagined tree houses, but take away the images and focus instead on the experience of living in a tree and you come closer to the architects concept behind House NA.

As the architect states, “The intriguing point of a tree is that these places are not hermetically isolated but are connected to one another in its unique relativity. To hear one’s voice from across and above, hopping over to another branch, a discussion taking place across branches by members from separate branches. These are some of the moments of richness encountered through such spatially dense living.”
