Japanese architecture firm CAPD designed a hidden modern home with a deceptive industrial exterior. From the road, this house looks similar to a shipping crate, with a nondescript design and simple features. Inside is a bright home with high ceilings that reaches 137 square meters and runs the length of the entire plot of land.
Referred to as the 'Hi-Lo House' because of its gabled roof, this residence looks as though it is split in two and built at separate levels. The bright white features, simple lines and large windows make this house a hidden gem on the inside. Allowing mass amounts of light into every room, the black window frames offer a modern, contrasting look. In the middle of the home, there is a large terrace, providing an outdoor courtyard between the kitchen and the living room. This hidden modern home showcases one-of-a-kind modern design features.
