It is undeniable that there are many breathtaking modern homes in Japan and this modern home is one of the homes included in the list. The modern home is located in Hiroshima and it is a 2012 project by NAP Architects.
The homeâ€™s most notable characteristic is its facade, which is constructed from glass bricks. The facade protects and obscures the homeâ€™s inner courtyard and provides a show of stunning prismatic natural light.
Sited among tall buildings in downtown Hiroshima, the modern home overlooks a street with passing cars and trams. The modern home has a garden that is visible from virtually all of the rooms in the house and in addition, the home also has an optical glass facade, a facade that without a doubt helps make the house look breathtaking.
The house also has a water-basin skylight that manifests water patterns on the houseâ€™s entrance floor.
Situated in Hiroshima, Japan, this breathtaking modern home has an optical glass facade and to realize such facade, glass casting was used to produce glass of high transparency from borosilicate, a raw material for optical glass.
The house also has a facade that appears like a waterfall that flows downward and scatters light and fills the air with freshness and without a doubt, the facade is one of the things that make the modern home look breathtaking.
The houseâ€™s glass block facade weights around 13 tons. Due to the fact that if the supporting beam was constructed of concrete, it would be of massive size, the architects pre-tensioned a steel beam and gave it an upward chamber by employing steel frame reinforced concrete.
After giving it the load of the facade, the architects cast concrete around the beam and minimized its size. In any way, located in Hiroshima, this optical glass house is without a doubt one of the most breathtaking modern homes in the city.
