Nowadays there is definitely no shortage of architectural designs that attempt to bring the outdoors, in. But in the case of Kazuyasu Kochi, who recently put the finishing touches on “47% House,” he may be the first to have brought the indoors, out.
Completed in May of last year and located in Kanagawa, Japan, the private residence has an interior living space of 47%, giving it a majority 53% of exterior living space. Mostly due to the abundance of large windows and sprawling terraces, there is a lightness and breathable energy to the space – truly an ode to the outdoors.
