In 2018 SNARK, a Japanese architecture practice, has designed House in Nakauchi,  a minimal residence in which aesthetics follow functions.

The building is divided in two: a main volume, made of wood, and a large semi-transparent volume, that provides large amounts of natural light and blurs the distinction between inside and outside. The project combines the aesthetics of a greenhouse with the function of a family home. Inside, sliding glazed partitions are used to divide rooms, allowing the space flexibility of use. Furniture, flooring and the ceiling are all crafted from a treated lightwood. Upstairs, the gabled roof provides space for storage and extra beds for guests.
