Fence House by Hitotomori
Fence House is a minimal wooden home located in Osaka, Japan, designed by Hitotomori. The project is a house for four people that was built on a small site. To ensure privacy, a fence runs along the boundary of the property and the street. The fence is designed as the facade of the house. Morning light is filtered through a large square of frosted glass within the fence to fall on the dining area. Light also passes between the top of the fence and the eaves of the house and is diffused by the leaves of the trees along the fence.
