As far as I know its some sort of glulam beam. We are metal fabricators that specialize in cable railings. We did not do the woodwork on this house and I cannot say for sure the exact species of wood.

Hi Louisa22, I am not sure about the flooring in the living room. We are the metal fabricators that made the cable railings. I can tell you however that the decking is "Ipe Brazilian Walnut". Ipe is a popular choice for many of our cable railing top rails since it is very hard and dense. Hope that helps!

Thanks. We put allot of effort into the design of our cable railings. The architects name was Kengo Kuma. See his website here.... http://kkaa.co.jp/works/architecture/glass-wood-house/

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The Intriguing Effects of Exposed Framing
Insulation for the roof level occurs above the roof rafters and maple plywood sheathing. Moving the plane of insulation above the roof rafters established a continuous plane of insulation. This insulation prevents the wood of the rafters from conducting heat from the interior to the exterior and has an even greater R-value, because it eliminates the joints between different materials. Joints invariably expand and contract at differing rates, allowing for the infiltration and movement of air.In most cases, insulating a structure with exposed framing on the roof or walls requires pushing the plane of insulation toward the exterior. This will increase the thickness of the wall or roof by the depth of the insulation and final finish, but has the benefit of achieving a better overall insulation value.

The broad horizontal overhang moves the eye toward the surrounding forest. The repetitive structural bay mimics the pattern of trunks, and it’s a bright overhead field of color that counterbalances the dark Brazilian walnut floor and recalls the airy forest canopy. The slender ceiling joists contribute to an overall sense of lightness and a delicate, hovering roof plane.
