Herman Hertzberger: YKK Dormitory in Kurobe, Japan


As with most of Hertzberger’s buildings, this one is also an open floor style building. It seems that a lot of natural light is utilized in the usable space of the building, which makes the building feel light and airy on the inside, while giving it a modern look on the outside. I find that the windowed bridges connecting the two parts of the building give it a unique feel that almost make it feel like two buildings in one. The inside of the building uses an inimitable combination of materials that also help brighten the place up.
