Penthouse in triangular wood
A house in the shape of a triangular prism. Rich wood texture characterises the interior

Japanese studio aoyagi design has designed a triangular-shaped home for a couple and their child in a suburban residential area as a response to the external wind pressure that also influences the project

The triangular prism is formed by a truss of CLT panels which are each 90 mm thick. The rich texture of the wood makes it unnecessary to install interior finishes or use insulation, thanks to the considerable thickness of the panels

The contrast between the first and second floors is striking: while the first floor is flooded with natural light, the attic with a height of 7 metres is hidden in shadows. In the atrium, the darkness of the attic extends down to the ground floor and blends with the natural light: a fusion of light and shadow that blurs the boundaries and expands the space
