Wall house is a project designed by CTA | Creative Architects. According to recently published scientific researches, indoor air quality is worse than outdoor air quality.

Through the process of working, the Wall house is shaped gradually: A house is made up of eight separate spaces surrounded by ordinary walls. These eight blocks are interspersed and intersect at a common space, which is formed from ‘breathing walls’. Photography by Hiroyuki Oki.
