At Night, Light from the Bathroom Shines
into the Outside Darkness
This house is located at the foot of the Ohu Mountain range in an area experiencing heavy snowfalls. The client’s request for a 'Jacuzzi Bath with a Great View
and Filled with Bright Natural Light of Winter' has been fulfilled. Radiant sunshine shines in through countless windows created in the walls, floor and the ceiling. The bathroom has the appearance of a monocoque egg-shell like frameless construction.
Each of the separate rooms is attached onto reinforced concrete foundation
walls. One is a bathroom. We made three different
hole dimensions in the steel plate (15φ、25φ、45φ）. The total number of holes is around
1,600. In order to allow the transmission of light, GFRP (glass-fibre reinforced
plastic) prepared with dissolved pigment, was laminated onto
both sides. The steel plate is waterproof and corrosion-resistant, and provides
heat insulation. The steel plate provides the structure and the
transom window frames.
