Optical Glass House is located in Hiroshima, Japan, designed by Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP. This house is one of my favorite, you can see at the pictures how cool and peaceful inside this house even though this house located downtown in a city. To achieve the peaceful atmosphere and also privacy, they place a garden and optical glass facade on the street side of the house. When sunlight refracting through the glass, it creates beautiful light patterns. The Facade constructed of 6,000 pure-glass box, strung on 75 stainless steel bolts suspended from the beam above the facade. From the outside, this transparent facade looks like a waterfall flowing downward. And from the inside it effectively shut out sound and gives tranquility effect. What a nice house isn’t it?
