Optical Glass House by Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP // Hiroshima, Japan. Fabricated from long, thin blocks, the huge glass wall forms a lustrous veil, screening out the distractions of the city and enclosing a verdant courtyard garden at the heart of the house.

La « Optical Glass House » a été conçue en 2012, à Hiroshima, par les architectes japonais Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP. Ils ont construit la façade avec des blocs de verres transparents mais brillants, ce qui permet de préserver l’intimité et la tranquillité de la terrasse où on peut admirer un très bel arbre situé en plein milieu.

Featuring a home in Hiroshima, Japan by Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP. The Optical Glass house offers a welcoming, tranquil atmosphere rarely seen in such perfect combination with contemporary and minimal interior architecture.

Nakamura’s Optical Glass House is composed of roughly 6000 glass blocks strung together by stainless steel. The soundproof blocks not only cancel out the bustling cars and trams but they also create a façade that functions much like an urban noren -allowing light and air to pass through while revealing only a mosaic of the lush garden inside.
