Video: Storage House / Ryuji Fujimura

This short clip via ja+u of the Storage House by Ryuji Fukimura Architects takes you on a quick journey through the relatively compact residence that occupies a thin plot of land in the Kanagawa Prefecture, part of the Greater Tokyo Area. Smartly designed to maximize the interior volumes, a unique aspect of the house is the dry moats that line the basement floor allowing for diffuse daylight to shower the interior that would have otherwise been artificially lighted. An added benefit of the moats is that it encourages air circulation from the bottom of the house to the top creating a stack effect.
