Curtain Wall House


Because the client was used to living “downtown”, a house was created to reflect this traditional open lifestyle with contemporary materials. Hanging in front of the third and second floor, the tent-fabric curtains not only control views, privacy, and light but also insulate the building. Like traditional Japanese shoji screens, fusuma doors, amado shutters, and sudare screens, the curtain wall reproduces the feeling of openness and control over interior environment.
