Step out of one world and into another
Shunan is an industrialised city located near the Seto Inland Sea, and it lacks anything in the way of scenery or character. As such, when the architects at Kubota Architect Atelier were designing this minimalist house, they had to really think outside the box. The resulting insular design, achieved with the use of three main L-shaped white slabs, control how light and air enter the home and provide an environment undisturbed by the surrounding noise and commotion. Its beautifully integrated terrace and pool are minimal and serene — though, expect the peace to be shattered when the Ferrari Mondial parked in the carport barks into life.
