Other than the large windowed exterior, this video of Shigeru Ban Architects’ House at Hanegi Park might seem unimpressive, but watch closely.

This single family residence in Tokyo, Japan allows the majority of the openings to graciously unfold, transforming the inside of the house into an open and fresh space.

The video patiently reveals overlapping sliding panes, optimized storage space and kitchen functions stored within steel panels.

There’s something strangely zen-like about watching the space transform. We dare you not to feel a bit more relaxed by the end of the video!
