Japanese Earth Hut

This is a really gorgeous earthen brick hut, with great curves and aesthetics, this house stands out!  It has a lofted bed above the bathroom section, but the rest is found on the ground floor in a open and flowing space.  On one side is the kitchen, the other is the living space.  It is also an interesting twist because earth brick houses are typically seen in third world nations, while Japan has some of the most stringent building standards for earthquakes.  To marry this old world tradition, with a new process to develop incredibly strong bricks is really interesting.


  1. This is stunning! Any information on where specifically it is?

  2. India, click on the link to the left bottom of the last picture “Via”. This house is in Japan and there is more information under that link.
    Very interesting design using specialized brick.
