House K by Studio 2A

Via @designboom, a multi-storey, transparent, hexagonal house in Kanagawa, Japan, explores a new approach to defining internal space, consisting of "13 wood panels that have been angled using a polar coordinate system," resulting in "freestanding panels which have have been organized on a 30 degree system."


The structure is wrapped in laminated glass, and dug in below grade, giving an eye-level first-floor view of the surrounding garden. The interior is finished entirely in light wood, with a spiral staircase uniting the loosely defined floors. More at Studio 2A. Photos: Takumi Ota.
