Japanese House Architecture – a unique urban design

From the outside, this Japanese house architecture is all organic. On the inside, the Branching Coral House is edgy and modern – not quite what you’d expect from the gentle curves that characterize its facade, but a pleasant surprise by all accounts. Architect Yasuhiro Yamashita of Atelier Tekuto designed this sleek house located in Yokohama City, Kanagawa, Japan. Distinguishable for its unique, sloping roofline and tapering profile, the white shell encases an expansive, glazed front face. Inside, the highlight of the living room is an industrial-style steel staircase; white like the walls, in cool contrast to the black floor, which gives this modern house a striking, urban appeal. Minimalist details complement the industrial white-siding walls throughout. And check out the sunken soaker tub in the master bath – small, but sweet! Atelier Tekuto
