M3 – KG by Mount Fuji Architects Studio

Spotted this morning on KITKA, we were impressed by the personality of this Tokyo residence by Mount Fuji Architects Studio. Thematic of the project’s dynamism, the buildings facade is in constant flux; appearing opaque and daunting in daylight while glowing and translucent at night. Inside, the intersection of the wood frame and the mirrored glass envelope creates an abrupt bridge between classical Japanese building and modern industrial architecture. And despite the towering concrete backdrop, the shelving integrated into the framing suggests the subtle feel of a cabin. Through a varied materials pallet — glass, steel, wood, concrete, and stone — the home embodies a surprising combination of austerity and warmth. See more at Mount Fuji Architects Studio.
