An alternating grid of ceramic tile covering steel blocks and glass blocks adorns this creative residence. Atelier Tekuto designed the cell brick house in 2003.
Tekuto uses new technology to put a contemporary spin on Japan's once-forgotten sensibility of light and environmental response. While serving as structure, the walls' steel boxes also serve as storage containers for the interior. It occupies only 33m², yet it is three stories tall.
Windows bring light throughout the space and material serves program as well as structure.
