Let it be known that I absolutely adore contemporary Japanese architecture. There is something about the way that the style focuses so intricately on materials and the interplay of light between surfaces. It is also so very, very slick and sophisticated – clean lines with warm/cool contrast. I must admit, I don’t love the all-white style – I much prefer the polished concrete + light timber combination. The design style is often so innovative in its exploration of shape and layout, and often includes the integration of nature inside the house.

As the post from Design Milk says – “Japanese architecture is all about coalescing the design with its surrounding environment.” Design Milk – particularly their minimalist section called ‘Skim Milk’ is one of the best design related blogs out there. Another RSS Feed recommendation.
