30 Ingenious Japanese Home Designs by Micle Mihai-Cristian

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.

Haute Design by Sarah Klassen: Architecture: Andersson-Wise. Portfolio: Andersson-Wise / Part One: Stone Creek Camp I came across the work of this amazing studio a short while ago, and couldn't wait to share some of their projects. Modern Masonry: Cool Concrete Cabin + Warm Wood Patio. We tend to think of wood as a warm material appropriate to indoor spaces of a home and concrete in terms of cold building blocks best left to the driveway paving, retaining walls or an outdoor porch. This minimalist modern cabin reverses these conventions, with board-formed concrete shaping each room and wooden planks kept to outdoor deck spaces – and the effect is surprisingly comfortable-looking. Stamped with the grain of the wood slats between which they were poured, the seamed concrete stripes along the walls and ceiling inside give the house a nice fine-grained scale of detail as well as a pleasing texture to the touch.

Stairs, countertops and other elements fold and flow smoothly from the walls themselves, carefully planned by BAK Architects and constructed my masters of the material (with which crisp corners and sharp intersections are incredibly difficult to create). Evergreen homes: The Method Cabin. Similar to May and June’s installments of “Evergreen Homes” — a series of monthly posts in which I spotlight great green homes from my home state of Washington — I’m moving away from the green building hotbed of Seattle to feature projects further afield in locales like the San Juan Islands and Walla Walla. For this month’s installment, I’m featuring a home — a prefab cabin, to be exact — located in the teeny-tiny (population = 90) but frequently traveled-through former mining outpost known as Glacier. Located near the summit of mighty Mount Baker on Washington State Scenic Byway Highway 542, the town of Glacier is flooded with outdoor recreation enthusiasts who flock to the area on a year-round basis to ski, snowboard, sled, climb, camp, hike, bike, raft, fish, forage for mushrooms, take mushrooms, or just take in the truly spectacular wilderness of the Mt-Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.

As mentioned, today’s featured “Evergreen Home” is indeed a cabin. Recent "Evergreen homes": Kona Residence. I can't speak for all architects, but I find myself drawn to the more impractical architecture in the world. Buildings designed less to fill a utilitarian need and more for the sake of self-actualization. I would almost say that this project by Belzberg Architects is more of a resort than a residence, yet the design elements and spatial order of the project are quite compelling. Despite its extravagance it remains elegant and inviting. So while this type of architecture might not be practical or sustainable or affordable, it remains quite inspirational.

Imagine the renovation dilemmas. A huge penthouse of a converted 1930s office building in TriBeCa, New York, is to be turned into a functioning home for a family with three teenagers.

Harris said yes and proceeded to make his magic.

Kindergarten Centered Around a Legendary Tree. At the Fuji Kindergarten in Japan, Tezuka Architects created a unique environment that, as a tool for learning, promotes freedom of movement. "Ring Around a Tree" is the extension of an existing kindergarten that consists of a wood and transparent glass volume spiraling upward, enveloping a Japanese Zelkova tree. The project creates spaces for play and foreign language instruction, while also providing a fun area for the children to wait for the school bus. Though, to the average adult, the space appears to have just two floors, for the children it has six with some areas being just three feet (one meter) high. Elements like railings and handrails are very slender, while the interior floors are made of wood.

All outdoor areas are covered with soft rubber mats to help cushion the children's inevitable falls. The Armada House. Containers of Hope, a $40,000 Home by Benjamin Garcia Saxe. The Perfect House For Surviving A Zombie Apocalypse Is For Sale.
