Architecture is easy: you just stare at the paper until droplets of blood appear on your forehead.

Sou Fujimoto, House N, Oita, Japan, 2008
“A home for two plus a dog. The house itself is comprised of three shells  of progressive size nested inside one another. The outermost shell  covers the entire premises, creating a covered, semi-indoor garden.  Second shell encloses a limited space inside the covered outdoor space.  Third shell creates a smaller interior space. Residents build their  life inside this gradation of domain.  have always had doubts about streets and houses being separated by a  single wall, and wondered that a gradation of rich domain accompanied by  various senses of distance between streets and houses might be a  possibility, such as: a place inside the house that is fairly near the  street; a place that is a bit far from the street, and a place far off  the street, in secure privacy. That is why life in this house resembles to living among the clouds. A  distinct boundary is nowhere to be found, except for a gradual change in  the domain. One might say that an ideal architecture is an outdoor  space that feels like the indoors and an indoor space that feels like  the outdoors. In a nested structure, the inside is invariably the  outside, and vice versa. My intention was to make an architecture that  is not about space nor about form, but simply about expressing the  riches of what are `between` houses and streets. Three nested shells eventually mean infinite nesting because the whole  world is made up of infinite nesting. And here are only three of them  that are given barely visible shape. I imagined that the city and the  house are no different from one another in the essence, but are just  different approaches to a continuum of a single subject, or different  expressions of the same thing- an undulation of a primordial space where  humans dwell. This is a presentation of an ultimate house in which  everything from the origins of the world to a specific house is  conceived together under a single method.”

The use of operable walls, doors, curtains and glass walls enables the occupants to control the experience and environment. This architectural manipulation of space allows a blurring of the boundaries between inside and outside and public and private realms. The manipulated spaces overlap and borrow the amenity and context of the surrounding environment.
