There are different ways to bring natural light into your home and with each technique you usher in something different. In the modern home, it is often glass walls, large windows and sliding glass doors that are frequently employed to create a cheerful and light-filled environment. But the Kame House designed by Kochi Architect’s Studio in Niigata, Japan takes an entirely different path with an interior that is flooded with light using a geometric atrium that sits at its heart. The hexagonal cut out does much more than just bring in ample ventilation as it is connected to every room of the house.

Smart cut-outs in different geometric shapes in each room ensure that all the 12 small rooms spread across two different levels are linked with the atrium. Both the lower and the upper level of the house contain the common hall while an additional bedroom and guest room sit on the lower level.

Each of the cut-out adds something special in its own way while shelves in light wooden tones and greenery give the interior a breezy, modern vibe.
