An Incredible Interior Courtyard Shielded By Optical Glass Bricks

Built around a carefully tended courtyard, this home enjoys the privacy of a glass wall for a dazzling sense of semi-transparency. Designed by Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP, and located in downtown Hiroshima, its structure surrounding structure serves as an ethereal mirage between it and the tall buildings that surround – a breath of fresh air in the midst of the city. Residents can observe the urban bustle from within the silent interior, separated but connected with the life that surrounds. The glass features are so expansive and weighty that only steel bolts could sustain the outer structure.
