The Keyhole House by EASTERN Design Office features a sleek and simplistic design that is a modern take on classic residential architecture. Located in the heart of Kyoto, Japan, this dynamically designed abode is inspired by the shape of a keyhole.

Sharply linear and light-accented, the home’s facade makes a bold statement featuring a narrow window configuration that surrounds the structure’s front doorway. When seen at night, these keyhole-inspired openings allow for light transparencies, giving the home an eye-catching design element

Painted in a stark neutral palette, the home’s white exterior features red and purple accents that complement the sharp shape and clean lines of the house’s roof design. A sleek and simplistic space, the Keyhole House by EASTERN Design Office is an urban abode that presents a future-friendly take on the traditional family home.
