House in Kawanishi by Tato Architects

Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com

The house was designed after the classic Australian construction which is called the “Queenslander”. It’s basically the main building which is carried by stilts with a motel-like sub base. Yo Shimada of Tato Architects has seen pictures of one of these “Queenslander” buildings and instantly decided that it would be a perfect fit for one of his projects. What I always admire about Japanese architecture is the style everything seem to be made in. Light is always a big part of it and the ability for it to flow through the rooms.
