I am in love with this polyhedral structure. By far one of the most unique architectural facade’s I’ve ever seen, Hironaka House is beautiful both inside and out. My favorite would have to be the steel material used for the building’s cladding. The tiny screws that hold them in place are minimalist details that I die for.
