Cell Brick House

January 13, 2010

Architects: Atelier Tekuto / Yasuhiro Yamashita, Bunkyo-ku

  • At first glance, the Cell Brick House seems to be a structure of piled-up concrete blocks, but on closer inspection one sees that these blocks are in fact steel boxes
  • Three-storey home featuring a unique facade of alternating steel blocks and glass
  • On the inside, these steel boxes become built-in storage shelves
