What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to 6 Innovative New Japanese Houses
There is something appealing to this view from one space to another across the indoor/outdoor passageway. In Japan, as in many places, people do not want to look from one house to another; they'd rather maintain their privacy than have another window. By internalizing the outdoors, privacy is maintained as light and air are brought inside. These spaces may not rival backyards in other countries, but in space-starved Japan they are some of the most valuable places imaginable.
