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

By • 2 days ago

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.

Casa M by Comfort_Architecten (8)

Many homes that incorporate a slightly rustic aesthetic tend to be very grand and feature statement pieces. You might enjoy the emphasis on whining wood finishes and the natural setting of the home but actually prefer a structure and decor scheme that manages to be somehow more understated in its rustic resplendence. 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!

Cielomar Residence by Barnes Coy & SARCO (2)

When you picture your “dream house”, does your mind automatically drift off to somewhere warm and surrounded by water so that you’re always ready for a sunny swim? That’s certainly the kind of house we would build ourselves if given the chance! These features alone already make up for a beautiful, enjoyable home, but some designers take it a step further by including several novelty features. Cielomar Residence is the perfect example and probably the house of our dreams!

Concrete House by Marte.Marte Architects (23)

Have you ever thought about what a house made entirely from concrete might look like, or perhaps about what kind of decor scheme might suit something as unique as a concrete house? Personally, we’d never actually seen a house made of concrete and when we imagined such a thing, we pictured it being cold, dark, and not necessarily pleasant for making a home in. The moment we saw pictures of Concrete House, however, we completely changed our tune and saw the beauty in such an unconventional idea!

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!
