Japanese Property

We have various pages of Contemporary Japanese Property selections with links to hundreds of individual project pages. We aim to select projects that are either of top quality or interesting or ideally both.

We cover completed Japanese homes, new house designs, architectural exhibitions and competitions across Japan. Comments on the selection welcome. The focus is on contemporary Japanese residential buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

e-architect have 4 pages of Japanese house designs:

“Overcome the disadvantage of the land condition, turn it into the beauty of the architecture”
When the client found this land, we were asked to give an advice. It was a strip of pentagonal land facing west with only a pair of parallel boundary lines. Because of this land condition, it was valued lower, almost 30% larger than regular priced lands for the same cost.
