Most people love sun-drenched houses, but I kinda, sorta feel that Sou Fujimoto Architects, who built this house in
went a little too far. Named House NA, the three-storied home features staggered levels,
a white steel-frame structure and hardly any walls. The ones that do exist are
made of glass. Tokyo, Japan
Don’t get me wrong – I like the idea of natural light as much as the next person, but c’mon. There are just too many drawbacks to a glass house. What if you want to scratch your butt? Or take a nap in the middle of the afternoon without people on the street below judging you? Or organize a stone-throwing contest among your friends? These are all things I’d never do, by the way. But if I wanted to do them, I think I’d like a little privacy.
