Enter the Elements
The ins and outs
In designing private dwellings in city locations, architect Takeshi Hosaka insists on introducing the natural elements.
He achieves this through modelling the structure such that light effectively penetrates the building fabric, and things like wind and rain find ample space, simply so that nature can gently affect the daily lives of the residents. In terms of modern urban life, this is an exponential leap, and an eminently healthy one at that.
