61.46 sqm Unconventional House in Japan

Asian architects have been constricted in their designs by the natural obstacles like soft grounds or earthquakes. But not anymore! Now, with modern techniques and building materials they can obtain stability and increased resistance of their buildings. With nature’s force breathing on their necks , Asian architects and engineers developed  shapes and structures that can easily resist  very fast blowing winds and  tectonic movements. Yo Yamagata Architects  developed in a beautiful area , on the main road  entering the center of Tokyo.

The  height limitation of the area forced the architects to comply with the 2 or 3 story  building scale. This original projects spreads over 61, 46 square meters and the interior is structured on 3 floors. The entrance is  possible from an opening in the  futuristic shape.  The entire building  is oriented towards  open- space living solutions. The existing space is carefully  equipped  with everything you need to live in the modern standards of comfort.

The intricate interior design  has not been forgotten  and ,  therefore the stairways are positioned in a manner that will not occupy  precious space.  Modern materials and colors were used  to enhance the space and to create the feeling of a vast open space. Natural light is also important so  designers mounted windows in key places so the building can benefit the sunshine as much as possible. Wooden floors give a worm feeling to the household perfectly combined with its  modern look.{found on archdaily and pics by Forward stroke Inc}
