The F Residence by Edward Suzuki architecture is a home design with clustered shapes concealing one another's identity.

The single family home is located in Kamakura, Japan, with a facade of a rectangular building. Little do people know, the dwelling's main focus point is a circular roundabout terrace that's centered in the heart of the structure. Standing in the middle of this green space, one can see the double-leveled outdoor space that makes every room in the house visible; all the rooms are designed to wrap around the perimeter of the terrace, which offers the ultimate open-concept feel.

The majority of the home's design, like the staircase railings, are slightly sloped to cater to the circular design of the garden. It's a hidden haven in this F Residence by Edward Suzuki architecture; from the outside, there's no visibility to the immaculate terrace with canopy trees and vegetable gardens.
