The architectural firm 'Tailored Design Lab' recently designed a cozy Japanese farmhouse that takes advantage of the surrounding elements. While Japan's urban areas are characterized by tiny apartments, the rural countryside boasts large family homes. This contemporary farmhouse features an open design that embraces the agrarian setting.

The cozy cottage is located in a rural part of Japan's Saitama Prefecture. The home is designed to celebrate the rural setting by incorporating different aspects of the surrounding elements. The farmhouse features an open design that looks out onto the neighboring fields. This design not only provides panoramic views, but it also creates a bright and airy home environment. The home even features a natural ventilation system that pulls in fresh air through the windows and pushes hot air out through the ceiling.

The contemporary farmhouse offers a modern take on rural architecture.
