Kenta Eto Atelier Designs an Elegant Residence in Bungotakada, Oita, Japan

By • Feb 17, 2017

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.

Cielomar Residence by Barnes Coy & SARCO (2)

Bellevue Modern by Lane Williams Architects (3)

Have you always dreamed of owning a modern home, but your definition of “modern” is a little bit homier than some? We’ve all seen homes before that were so contemporarily styled as to look cold and uninviting, but not every modern home is built this way! Some people believe modern styles to be a little more than pristine shades of white and clean lines. Some are instead more casual despite staying true to many details, like the signature geometric furnishings. This expansive home, gorgeously named Belleview Modern, is the perfect example of the classic contemporary concept that we mean!

Mask House by Hastings Architectural Associates (9)

Have you always been intrigued by historical cities and the way they were surrounded with habitable fortresses for protection! We have too, but we actually prefer an interior decor style that’s far different from the fortress style; one that’s clean, concise, and ultra modern in its uniqueness. As far as we knew, however, the two styles aren’t exactly complementary, so they aren’t commonly blended together in one home… until now! Mask House is a stellar example of how architects can break style rules in beautiful ways.
