The house without walls (Japan) has 240 sqm total floor area and is supported by a central core and several extremely thin steel columns. The absence of exterior walls on the ground floor allows the internal area to extend to the surrounding garden on 360 degrees.

Covered porch leads to a double-height entry that is natural light illuminated from above. The space compresses before the next living double-height volume. The master bath, living space and dining space are arranged enfilade about a center space that leads through a double-height window to a park and sculpture garden.
