final wooden house by sou fujimoto architects

the use of wooden beams creates a push and pull of the space which is open to the outdoors

japanese architect sou fujimoto has designed a wooden bungalow, small and primitive. the design is meant to highlight the versatility of lumber. using large beams of 350mm square profile cedar, the pieces are piled on top of one another, creating the walls, ceiling, floors and built in nooks. this leaves no definitive lines between each of the structure’s components, thus blending the entire interior of the space together. the function of the small home is defined by how the user adapts to the wood structure. the house is meant to bring a kind of harmony between the built environment and the way the human body behaves within the space.
