Meme Meadows’ Experimental House By Kengo Kuma and Associates

These stunning photos really caught our eye today as we batten down the hatches and cosy up in front of the fire, before the blizzards hit the UK tomorrow.

The experimental house is inspired by the traditional architecture of the indigenous Ainu, whose “Chise” style building clad with sedge or bamboo grass hold in the warmth of a central fireplace that is never allowed to burn out.

The fundamental idea of Chise – house of the earth – is to keep warming up the ground this way and retrieve the radiation heat generated from it.
