The House in Saitama by Satoru Hirota Architects

This two-story wooden house in Saitama by Satoru Hirota Architects looks a little like a tiny shed. When viewed from one side, the single window is remarkably simple -- a little bit of country in the city.

Inside the house in Saitama is an oasis of modernity. The clean white walls and dark wood finish allow for a sleek interior. The windows are small and seemingly placed at random so that natural light comes in through unexpected ways.
