30 Ingenious Japanese Home Designs

By Freshome.com - Interior Design & Architecture Magazine on Oct 29, 2012

Overwhelmed by so many examples of smart Japanese architecture, we decided to put together a post with some of the best projects presented on Freshome so far. Most of the modern homes below seem to defy natural laws of Physics and play with the viewer’s perception of space. Our favorite buildings are not the ones characterized by large interiors, but rather those that cleverly and unexpectedly adapt to the requirements of a small site. Strange polygonal, rectangular and cube-shaped structures, cantilevered volumes, inner small courtyards and windows that appear in unpredictable places are just some of the elements that make these Japanese home designs stand out.

The style employed in most of the residences featured below is minimalist. Function is the main attribute defining the Japanese buildings in this display, each showcasing an interesting partition of spaces. Ornaments are kept to a minimum and the overall sober feel is reduced by the use of lovely wooden accents. We invite you to go through the photos in the galley and if you see any interesting project, click the small text at the bottom in order to be redirected to the original post with much more information. And in the end, we would love to read about your thoughts on modern Japanese architecture.
