The Japanese studio, mA-style Architects has created a geometric home extension that puts a modern twist on a traditional Japanese house. Although a great design touch, this extension is meant to be more practical than anything else. It offers a private retreat for a young couple living with their extended family.

Made primarily out of plywood, the geometric home extension is connected to the main house by a narrow passageway that cuts through the garden. Forming a sharp triangle, which rests above a stark white rectangle, the interior is as minimalist as the exterior. Yet its lofty V-shaped roof provides an airy space inside that is comfortable and inviting. The couple will never want to leave the geometric home extension.
