Japanese architect, Ryue Nishizawa of SANAA (his partnership with Kazuyo Sejima), came up with a new definition of private and community living. The Moriyama House is a flexible-format of minimalist steel prefab house for Yasuo Moriyama, a perfect example where the home is designed like a community while connecting the inside and outside.

Located in the suburbs of Tokyo, This modern architectural concept presents a multi-building residence with ten separate buildings, ranging from 1 to 3 stories high, where every room is its own building even Moriyamas bath is a separate building. The buildings are all prefabricated houses, which use steel plating to make the walls as thin as possible, in order to maximize the interior space.In between the buildings you will find small gardens and pathways that are open to the street while connecting the different structures – what i like about this modern prefab is that it’s playfully blurs what we see as private and public property.

SANAA are also responsible for the stunning new home for the New Museum being built on the Bowery in New York and the building for the Zollverein School of Management and Design in Essen
