Remixing tradition, this sloped Japanese home is a fresh translation of cultural architecture. The family residence is designed by architecture firm Roote and is located in the heart of Fukuoka. Named 'N House', the angular abode almost resembles the letter of the alphabet and geatures two sharp and opposing elements.

This Japanese home features two levels and measures 16 meters in width by 4 meters in length. Though this family residence appears dramatically sloped from the outside, its interior is fairly leveled, mixing blank white walls with cozy furnishings and natural wood finishes.

The home's warm wood facade matches its interior wood details that are inspired by traditional Japanese architecture. In addition to paper-covered doors, the home also features a cozy courtyard and exterior lounge space.
