‘unsui’ by n maeda atelier

‘unsui’ is the name of a recently completed residence by japanese architect norisada maeda and his
firm n maeda atelier. located in yamato kanagawa, japan, the home’s name translates to ‘mass of soil’.
while the main floor is glass clad and translucent the second floor is a solid mound covered in earth-like
clay. inside the two floors are linked my blob shaped windows installed din the floor. the home also
boasts rounded corners all around. walls merge into walls and floors become walls which then
become ceilings. from ‘unsui’ by n maeda atelier
