The Necklace House is a beautiful home designed by japanese architects Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP architects in Obanazawa Yamagata, Japan. Its main attraction , besides the unusual shape, is the bathroom. Thats simply because it has 16,000 windows! this is amazing and pretty impressive. This special feature as well as the house’s C-shape and the interior gardens gave the very special necklace-like continuity to the house.
The house is C-shaped because of the client’s request to make an open living, integrated with the garden. So this shape keeps it all in touch with the surroundings in complete privacy. The rooms were placed higher above the ground because the area’s snowfalls reach 2m.
Rooms spread along the walls and one of them is connected to another diagonally behind the wall. Also, in the house, small gardens allow the connection between rooms. I loved the idea of bringing the nature inside the home as well as lighten it up with huge windows. It takes the cube feeling away from the construction.
