Polyhedrons are an increasingly popular shape in Japanese home design, but the stunning angles provided from this practice are rarely used as well as they are in Atelier Tekuto's Monoclinic. While the home is set in a very suburban area, the extensive use of spacious, angular windows makes the residents feel at one with nature as they look at the sun, trees and sky outside. These fantastic windows also let in ample natural light so residents never feel disconnected from the world around.
Meanwhile, the jagged, white stair cases and sharp jutting, white walls attract the eye and make the cozy space seem quite a bit more spacious. The contrast of the raw concrete walls make the entire design feel clean and modern. The 925 square-foot space provides the owners with a comfortable second home in Tokyo and two lucky renters with studio apartments in one of the world's most crowded cities.
While you may not ever see the Monoclinic for yourself, it is a great reminder of the power of natural light to bring life and the sense of drastically increased space.
