Where form meets function

Located in Naruto-Shi, Tokushima, Japan, this incredible home from Naoko Horibe Architects has the feel of those fancy 1950s California homes with its sweeping curved front and narrow pillars. That’s where the similarity ends, inside this is all stark modern concrete and clean surfaces. Constructed on raised foundations, a necessity in a flood-prone area, the rooms are built around a central rectangular courtyard, accessible from all sides through sliding glass panels, providing some incredible light (and shadow) across the interior. Take a look for yourself in our gallery.
