Boundary House

Boundary House is a minimalist house located in Chiba, Japan, designed by Atelier Tekuto. The site is located in an urbanization control area where construction is not normally allowed. However, the clients’ vested rights in the land made it possible to have their house built on this lot. The architects have given careful consideration as to how they can make the most of land like this – land situated between residential areas and farmland. (3)

Name: Boundary House

Designer: Atelier Tekuto

Location: Chiba, Japan

Year: 2012

Boundary House is a minimalist house located in Chiba, Japan, designed by Atelier Tekuto. The site is located in an urbanization control area where construction is not normally allowed. However, the clients’ vested rights in the land made it possible to have their house built on this lot. The architects have given careful consideration as to how they can make the most of land like this – land situated between residential areas and farmland.

The maze-like structure of the building is designed so that the interior can merge with the exterior, and top lights offer the first solution for blurring the boundaries between architecture and nature. Sixteen top lights, with openings of similar detail, are set on both the interior and exterior, and separating the outside and inside is just inlaid glass.
