Amazing Daylight House by Takeshi Hosaka Architects



Sun, moon and stars are the main celestial bodies that illuminate our planet, Earth and make our lives more enjoyable. Natural light has always been appreciated more than the artificial light for its numerous advantages: it is healthier and does not cost us anything. It is a good reason why people prefer to live in a house where the quantity of natural light is more increased than the use of the artificial light.

Takeshi Hosaka Architects took into account all these elements and designed the amazing Daylight House. It is a house that is located in Yokohama, Japan and the fantastic thing about it is related to the idea that its residents can live under the natural lighting from sky here.

It is five minutes walk from the railway station and is structured by laying a basic grid (approx. 1500mmx1600mm) over the site, and using the volume of a single high-ceilinged room with a bedroom, kids’ room and study partitioned off using fittings approximately half the height of the ceiling. The natural light is provided by the 29 skylights (approx 700mm square) installed in the roof that illuminate the room as soft light diffused through the curved acrylic ceiling plates. There is an air space between the acrylic surface and the roof which assures comfort during summer or winter.

Daylight House is the expression of the beauty of natural light and the white interiors with the white colored pieces of furniture increase this idea. All over the place there spotlights and glass elements that fit perfectly this airy house full of light.
