This home, built by Kenta Eto Atelier in 2016 is located in Bungotakada, Oita, an area of Japan in which the summer rains are rich and plentiful. It should be highlighted that the extensive roofing is made up of just one unit, and its inclination is convenient when battling the slaps of the rain as it falls in curtains on its surface. As there is a considerable amount of space between both sides of the external corridor, residents can continue with their daily activities under its shelter even if it rains.

Some designers seek to achieve that by sticking to natural textiles and materials in the building and decor, but also adoption a sort of minimalist chic shape and detail, skipping the pomp and circumstance in favour of simplicity. That’s exactly what the creators of Casa M sought to do!

The moment we saw pictures of Concrete House, however, we completely changed our tune and saw the beauty in such an unconventional idea!
