What makes this house recyclable? Even though the house is not a prefab, this house is designed for easy assembly and dismantling including the wooden floor and façade while the parts are reusable. This house also features some “traditional” green features including passive solar PV cells and geothermal energy for cooling and heating. This house is in all senses, very interesting due to its unique see through design. The design of the house is simply metal beams which constructed to form a house’s frames and then enclosed with glasses in all sides and from the bottom to the top. We are not quite sure about the reason to build anything like this but we can see that one of the reasons is probably the view. Located on a slope with amazing city view like such, one will go for an open design which will flood the house with lights and views. For the owners of this house, such design might not enough so the architects at Werner Sobek built the house without walls inside, a perfect see through design. This 2706 sq feet “House R 128” is accessible by a bridge above the kitchen and the dining room. Photo credit: Roland Halbe and Josef Schulz, Stuttgart/Germany.
It seems that the thick forest that surrounds the house is one of the determining factors in designing this house this way. Other factors could be anything including taste and style but the final result is stunning. The ring house as the architects stated is completely built of the series of glass and wood rings which enclose the modern interior. The wood rings there provide privacy to the owners and frame the glass. The glass itself, the ring of this house is in unique yet nearly futuristic design. I think about zebra stripes but instead of white stripes, they are transparent. Inside, the bright interior is designed in minimalist style. There’s nearly no wall inside this house. At least only the one that divided the bedroom is visible on the pictures. This house is located just outside of Tokyo and was designed by Takei-Nabeshima Architects. (tna-arch.com/).
