What material is used for the walls?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
To me, it looks like a low tech, economy approach, using tightly fitted 4' x 8' sheets of OSB (Oriented Strand Board) first painted a dark brown or black and then gone over with a semi-gloss off white without using too much paint on a 1/4" napped roller (such as one would use to paint smooth flat surfaces)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheltered within the nest's recycled wood chip-board walls is the little dove it works so hard to protect, seen here at play in the living area. The decor of the interior is minimalist modern with industrial touches: Cinder blocks stand in place of a flashy media console, plain bulbs and streamlined pendants hang from the ceiling, and modern furnishings in neutral colors fill the space.
Cathy Lara added this to 8 Delightfully Casual Common Spaces
The absence of walls in common areas ups the casual sensibility of this modern "Nest House" in Japan. Lesson from this room: A good way to tell if your space is accessible and comfortable is if your pets, kids or guests gather there with ease.
Square. Distinct in design, this double-sided square fireplace is a unique spinoff from its more conventional and round cousin. I love how you can see through it!Design tip: Place this fireplace between the living area and dining room as a room divider that still allows for an open space.See more double-sided fireplaces
