Japan Living

Natural serenity, unostentatious refinement and interplay of light and shadow are all hallmarks of Japanese residential design. The selection of houses reflects the many changes in the dynamics of the new Japanese society, including an aging population and the desire to remain childless; while others embody creativity and individuality. Throughout, a return to traditional materials and design elements is married with such present-day requirements as minimalism, flexibility, energy efficiency and electronic gadgetry. Each of these homes is an exquisite representation of the integrity consistently found within Japanese residential architecture, both in new construction and old.
