The exterior of your house can say a lot about you, but this one designed by Yukio Hashimoto draws a blank. The F-House features a facade that resembles a crisp, white piece of paper with a dog-eared corner.
Located in the Gion neighborhood of Japan, the F-House's interior follows the rules of traditional Japanese architecture. This means there are no visible windows, but an interior garden exists surrounded in glazing within an indoor courtyard. According to architect Yukio Hashimoto, the home's design was inspired by origami, the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The simple yet modern style sits in contrast to its traditional elements. Meanwhile the folded corner provides an appealing visual feature so the structure doesn't appear too closed off.
