House in Muko by FujiwaraMuro Architects
The large vertical louvres give a pleated appearance to this structure in Kyoto. Two-storey-high windows are slotted between each of the louvres which allows for natural to filter evenly through. Movements of the sun can be felt at all times throughout the day. This casts different shadows across the interiors at different times of the day.
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.

Description: I could not find a satisfying solution to light my dining room, so I made a customized Lamp myself. There was an inspiring hack with the Rönas candleholder on here before.
But instead of wiring it to the ceiling with Sända tracks I made free hanging tracks from aluminum profiles and did the wiring inside them. It is all routed parallel with 0,75 mm² in rather complicated black MDF profiles an an oiled strip to cover it all up.
