For those who prefer homes that exude more masculine qualities from the outside, the Casa Nord by Jun Igarashi Architects will provide a few sparks of inspiration. The outside is finished in a matte black color, which conventionally looks more suited to a male clientele.
Inside, however, the house is quite bright, which is surprising after viewing the outside of the abode. Wood finishings are used for most of the interior, and if one were to experience the inside of the house alone, it could easily be confused with a cabin found in the Canadian north. The house is actually a shared space, making it quite cozy for the various residences that live in the building.
