Find the Light

Akiko

Daylight house refers to the beautiful light throughout the day. There are no views through windows of the domestic space within. However, the inside has been designed with all the family’s needs providing a warm, inviting and secure place to live and spend quality time together. This calming house in a busy city like Tokyo proves we can still have connection to nature without being exposed to neighbours and traffic. Creating peaceful, restful and private spaces inside while keeping the buzz outside out is the new design challenge the architects, Takeshi and Megumi Hosaka, face.

The architects sensitively interpreted the needs of the family and designed the bedrooms and an area for private studies with an open ceiling space. A loft level partially sits on top of the children's bedroom and serves as a neutral platform for multiple functions.
