The quirky designs of modern housing in Japan undeniably grab our attention time and again. Here are five of our favourites.
LONDON – Often, a more viable option for gaining additional living space in the English capital is to increase the footprint of the home that you already have.
STARNBERG – The archetypal shape of House H is inconspicuous and unassuming against its backdrop, as it stands quietly isolated within a picturesque landscape.
SHFELA – From their small office in old Jaffa, husband and wife Dan and Hila Israelevitz specialize in villas. They do other projects too but their heart is with designing houses.
HEREDIA – Casa Murray Music is not a simple house in which its occupants simply exist. Instead, it is a place of exploration and discovery.
NIMES – A modern extension has been added to Benoît and Roselyne's traditional farmhouse in the south of France in order to accommodate a growing family.
VIENNA – For quite some time, residents in the Austrian capital have relied on the ability to extend their townhouses vertically, converting roof space into extra quarters for living.
MELBOURNE – Victoria is geographically the smallest state in Australia; it is also the most densely populated and this is creating a shift in its architectural language.
MELBOURNE – A luscious and dynamic garden brings Charles House to life. The house itself was realised a little over a year ago but it is only now that the landscaping is finalised.
SEOUL – Keeping in line with Korean building regulations isn't the easiest part of an architect's job. Keeping clients happy isn't always a breeze either.
LOGATEC – One of the simplest ideas of all inspires the form of a timber-clad home in central Slovenia: the chimney.
LONDON – The English capital can be an exciting and bustling hub of activity but, just outside the central cocoon in Greater London, opportunities can be slightly more lacking.
