Maison de y+Mdo, bureau japonais qui m’était inconnu jusqu’à aujourd’hui. L’utilisation de parois en treillis métallique est plutôt intéressante, quoi que possiblement aliénant.

A house by y+Mdo, a japanese office unknown to me until today. The use of a metallic grating is quite interesting, but maybe alienating.
A plain-woven iron grating on the façade of the house suspends out of the the missing corner and creates an interesting mix of transparency and privacy. Although the grating works as a partition, it provide a brightness and a perspective with inside the room where is not large. Sumikiri House achieves a moderate distance and relation between the client and their neighbors. The design of the corner cutoff and plain-woven grating achieves both transparency of perspective visibility and secured privacy in addition efficiently utilizing the narrow lot.
