lumber house

This building is a cafe designed by Kengo Kuma as you can guess, and its unique structure appears to be a pile of normal lumber just like Jenga, the toy blocks ( related page is here ). The material is standard lumber which is easy to get, you can buy it everywhere even at the DIY shop, and the simple structure allows you to maintain or maybe to disassemble very easily.


This interior shot shows the structure is not only for outside but for inside to support the heavy roof. So the glass wall can be widely surrounded to provide light in the room.
