Stilted house in Japan by Takeru Shoji Architects

A white timber roof masks the upper storey of this Japanese house by Takeru Shoji Architects, raised on wooden stilts the pale vertical timber facade is revealed underneath.

The bedrooms are situated downstairs, and the living up.

The angled white canopy overhangs the pebbled garden with irregularly spaced pavers. Love the concrete bench seat attached to the base of the house.

A staircase with white treads planted into the wall of the white hallway wall leads to an entrance hall fronted by two large glazed doors with timber frames.
