Comprised completely of wood, Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto Architects has designed a wooden bungalow, small and primitive. Wood is extremely versatile. In an ordinary wooden architecture, lumber is effectively differentiated according to functions in various localities precisely because it is so versatile. Columns, beams, foundations, exterior walls, interior walls, ceilings, floorings, insulations, furnishings, stairs, window frames, meaning all. The wooden house is located at Kumamoto, Japan.
