Residential Building Glass House , built in Hiroshima (Japan) – work of specialists from the Japanese architectural studio NAF Architect & Design. The building’s architecture is based on a system of laying concrete blocks, each of which has a size of 1.0 m × 1.0 m × 1.5 m
Concrete used for the construction of the building is a surplus and waste local cement plant, and is therefore a cost-effective material. The downside of this choice is long-term construction, depending on the plant’s operation and speed of delivery of waste are being designed.
The building, constructed in such a straightforward, but the creative process is seismically stable. Concrete is alternating with clear glass, which lets in plenty of natural light and provides continuous visual connection of the external and internal.
Externally, the structure looks like a cold and industrial facility. Project authors note that the situation would be saved many green ornamental plants that are already in the near future will be planted in and around the home. It is planned that the vegetation turns dull structure in an oasis of greenery and natural beauty.
