Japanese house designs, contemporary residential buildings in Japan, 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.
Design: Fujiwara Architects. A mezzanine-floored residence consisting of a single-roomed space, located on a fan-shaped site. The movements of the sun can be felt inside the house all throughout the year. Light coming from the east strikes the louvered boards before entering the house and reaching deep into its interior.
Architect: SPACESPACE. Located in a residential area in Ikoma-city, Nara: the architects stacked the garden and the parking lot at the same planar position by laying a concrete plane which is the roughly same size as living space, and lifting up the part of it to use its downside as the parking lot.
