A Modern Abode Overlooks A Traditional Landscape

Architect Satoru Inoue designed this modern black and white rice field house located in Shunan, Yamaguchi prefecture, Japan. The clean modern lines of the home allow it to fit in seamlessly with the rolling hills and flooded rice paddies that surround it.

The two-story wood framed rice field house boasts stunning views of the rural landscape. Inside the walls are white with natural wood beams highlighting a vaulted ceiling and loft-like second floor.
