Invariably light- The Glass House by AR Design Studio (via contemporist)
Syros House by Myrto Miliou
“The geometry of the building follows that of the landscape, mimicking the stone retaining walls typical of the Greek island. The architects designed the house to relate to the landscape and make the most of the sculptural qualities of light. The house also minimizes energy use with planted roofs and thick stone walls that keep the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter.”

House in Muko by Fujiwarramuro Architects.
“A mezzanine-floored residence consisting of a single-roomed space, located on a fan-shaped site. The movements of the sun can be felt inside the house all throughout the year. Light coming from the east strikes the louvered boards before entering the house and reaching deep into its interior. Direct sunlight from the south traces a shower-like path of lines as it penetrates into the building. Light coming from the west reflects off the walls of this house with an open stairwell before entering it.”
