John Hill added this to 6 Innovative New Japanese Houses
The first two projects illustrate fairly open exteriors, one screened with pipes and one cutting openings into corrugated steel walls. But this house is closer to a concrete bunker than what many people might think of as a house. Yet this photo clearly shows that the opacity is just toward the street, and the inside is very open.
On passing through the street’s tough exterior we arrive in a double-height wood-clad interior with expansive glass walls, opening onto a private courtyard, brightly sunlit during the day. In contrast to the public face, the private spaces are open, warm and welcoming.

Hated the exterior, bunker look, but the wide open interior is so warm and welcoming. The yin-yang of the bunker exterior and the open, woodsy interior is a fascinating design execution.
