Although the archetype of a house dictates that it has at least four corners that meet at right angles, the rural home of Japanese commercial photographer Mikio Hasui confounds this time-tested template for a mind-opening geometric dome of a house, providing a uniquely alluring volume composed of tessellated triangles. Built by Hasui in 2000 in the town of Gohongi in Nagano Prefecture, the house heavily utilizes timber throughout — aiming to evoke the atmosphere of a traditional kissaten coffee bar – while numerous skylights maintain an airy and light-filled interior. An open-plan living room is optimized towards Hasui’s oversized ’60s-era Altec Lansing speakers, from which the jazzophile pumps out mellow jazz tunes. Also serving as Hasui’s workplace, the house encompasses his atelier, office, and darkroom.
