This private residence designed by Cell Space Architects was built in the Kanagawa Prefecture in Japan. Boasting 2300 square feet, the interior of this hose has all the typical Japanese materials: maple wood floors, pristine white walls and Shoji dividers. There are clear glass dividers in the bathroom, which makes the whole area feel bigger and clearer. I like the monotone grayscale palette used on the outside of the house, which contrasts nicely with the greenery and rocks.
