Ysy House was designed by Nagoya-based studio Auau and is located in Seto, Japan, in a beautiful but populated forest, on top of a small hill. The charming asymmetrical shape of the residence is well adjusted to the building site and is interesting to observe from every angle. With a matte white finish, the home is very well differentiated within its neighborhood and is quite an attention-grabber. The main entrance seems partially hidden by original panels which wrap the whole building in a shell-like surface. The home is structured on two levels and the asymmetrical walls make the interiors unique. The arrangements are minimalist and modern, the contrast between the floors and white walls creating an appealing visual effect. (Photographer: Masaya Yoshimura)
