Overlook the surrounding landscape from the palisades of this beautiful i-House by Masahiko Sato. The structure, located in Nagasaki, Japan, featres an ivory-white finish, allowing it to simultaneously stand out and blend in to its environment.

Masahiko Sato is a master at manipulating angles and delineations in order to create structurally sound and elaborate buildings. The i-House brings together 45 degree and 90 degree angles, resulting in a house that appears rigid and simple from one angle, but elaborate from another.

The clean and crisp allure of the house derives from its smooth lines and ivory white color. At night, Masahiko Sato's building complements the disappearing sunlight as the i-House takes on a midnight blue tone, reflecting the dark night sky.
