Before You Go
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.
As for how to make that happen, planning is key. Before you start getting into the nitty gritty of your redesign, take some time to look at the space. Consider details like the flow of the room, the lighting, and the furniture arrangement. Consider what’s working and what isn’t, as well as what changes you can make in order to make ease of use your first priority.
