This house in Japan designed by Coil Kazuteru Matumura Architects was done to improve the circulation of air throughout the abode, as well as improve the overall insulation. Not wanting to spend too much money on the upgrade or waste extra material, the architecture firm completed the project in an eco-friendly manner.
The inside is mostly made up of wooden material, taking on an almost cabin-like feel. Everything is quite minimalist and definitely not extravagant, which is what the architects were going for in this design. Enhancements to the space were only put in if it was needed, not just for the sake of upgrading the building. As a result, this house in Japan is simplistic yet stylish.
