Tono Mirai-Future House-2010

I have have been mildly obsessed with cob houses for a while now and Pinterest has been a great jumping off point. Tonight I found videos on YouTube and went down a rabbit hole of glee. I think the pinnacle in cob house construction is certainly this place in Japan, which combines cob building techniques with traditional Japanese wooden construction. The home melds together these processes beautifully and with such care to the land that is built on. The architect Tono Mirai calls it “Future House.” Check it out! Video by Kirsten Dirksen is here.
