The Koro Home in Tokyo, Japan was designer by Katsutoshi Sasaki’s + Associates. The house’s suspended wooden slats create an ever-changing pattern of light and shadow on the walls as the sun moves across the sky. “The delicate transition of the sun reflected on the wooden vertical lattice let inhabitants feel the riches and flux of time, and stirs their Japanese sensitivities,” says architect Katsutoshi Sasaki.

Located on a corner where once was a forest, the Koro House’s six sides were designed to frame a series of small outdoor spaces between the property and the street, as well as to let light in from different directions. “The number of sides is six, which was decided according to the uses required for the garden and the study of each interior room,” stated Sasaki.

Sasaki added stones and cherry trees in the garden and large stone slabs for steps. “This project made scenery come back,” he said. On the inside, the rooms follow the angles of the facades, creating the spaces around the living room where plywood modules run along the outer walls, divided into sleeping spaces for the children, a built-in study space, a toilet and a closet. “I proposed a plan where we space the roof from the exterior wall, to take in the view of the sky and natural light from the whole circumference of the house,” said Sasaki.
