“Final Wooden House” is a very small weekend house by architect Sou Fujimoto. Fujimoto’s works are often playful, questioning the basic assumptions of what a house should be. In his take on the log cabin, massive 14″ (35 cm) cedar timbers are stacked into a cube. These timbers form not only the exterior but also extend inside to create a complex series of interlinked spaces and cubbyholes. The various surfaces can be used as tables, beds, shelves or benches. The only predefined space is the bathroom in a lower corner. In the words of the architect:
There is no separation of floor, wall and ceiling here. A place that was thought as a floor transforms into a chair, a ceiling, or a wall from different perspectives. Floor levels are relative and people perceive the space according to where they are…The occupants discover various functions within those undulations.
