Fukinuke


Fukinuke (吹き抜け) – n – an atrium-like vertical passageway that connects the floors of a structure. Fukinuke literally means to “blow through”, and allows a breeze or natural light to benefit the occupants of the house, regardless of what floor they may be on. Ironically, though some feel it’s a waste of valuable space, a fukinuke can actually create a feeling of spaciousness depending on its height and design.
