As a child, we used to draw a house with a box shape as the frame and a triangle as the roof, but that’s still far different from this Japanese house. The shape is strange but still pleasing to the eye. Not only beautiful, the house is also utilizing every space and corner, make a sophisticated modern house. Curious? Let’s take a look at these picture.
Asymmetric but Sweet
The shape is asymmetrical, consisting of unusual triangle and square shapes. This is the side view of the house. The selection of dark grey color becomes a distinctive character of this house. The house is located in the suburbs area, surrounded by beautiful nature.
Being One with Nature
The stones pile in the front area of this house and the large trees in the background make this house seem being one with nature. A color contrast created between the green trees and the grey house. And of course, as one characteristic of Japanese house, wood element also used for this house. So beautiful and natural, right?

In this airy room, a fan is the only thing that decorates the high ceiling. The large windows are installed without curtains, allow us to see directly the view outside. The couch can be the best spot to relax while enjoying the view.

Classy Black Fireplace
Still using a dark color, this fireplace looks classy in this area. This fireplace is located next to the wooden staircase, while the empty space under the stairs is used to put a bike. The decoration around the stairs is also simple, just one potted plant.
The Bedroom in the Attic
