Reflecting its local climate, culture and history, this memorable home by architect Hidenari Arai of AE5 Partners firm is inspired by the ‘kura,’ a traditional compact Japanese home. Fusing a geometric facade along with privacy screens that protect from nosy neighbors, the House M by AE5 Partners is sleek and modern in aesthetics.

Filled with plenty of natural light, this contemporary architectural piece features a futuristic design concept sure to become a growing architectural trend in residential neighborhoods throughout the Japan region.
