When many people think of modern housing, their minds often go to brand new buildings that have only just been constructed. On the contrary, however, some of our favourite contemporary homes have actually already been standing for generations and have simply been recently refurbished. We’re huge fans of any design and decor scheme that makes an otherwise outdated building into something modern but comfortable. That’s exactly the story with House Four!

When you live in a climate that’s pleasant and warm all year round, you’ve got the perfect scenario for a stunning open concept home. With every building that adopts an open concept, however, the challenge is to find innovative ways to still provide the residents with enough privacy to make them feel comfortable and safe in their daily lives. As with anything, a license to get creative in one feature opens doors for unique decor and design elsewhere in the home as well. KAP-House is a shining example of what we mean.
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.
