Built in 2008 by Sou Fujimoto Architects, this Final Wooden House– as it is called, is one of the most interestingly constructed dwellings that has come around in some time. Located in Kumamoto, Japan; it all came to be from the idea of stacking wooden blocks. Jenga anyone?
It’s a relatively tiny space, but looks so enticing and actually holds people quite well due to it’s lack of sprawling square footage that we are used to seeing in some places. 14″ square cedar blocks were used to build out the life size version of the home, creating the actual parts and pieces that lumber is typically used to build (ie. doors, walls, framing, etc).
It’s primitive, yet stunningly contemporary and minimalistic.
