Design Nico Architects (Kazuya Matsuda), a company from Japan, completed the impressive PORT Residence, a two-storey home, workspace, and commercial showroom located in Fukuoka city, Japan. According to the architects, the project is “situated on a corner of a road with heavy traffic during the day, the front facade of the showroom is finished with double-height glazing that enables the interior to project itself onto the street. A linear porch lines the outdoor space and gains shading through an overhang and a series of red cedar louvers. four steel pillars stand on a slight angle, providing structural support while lending a modern expression to the exterior. The atelier is also made transparent to the street, but stepped back from the plot line to accommodate a small parking space“. The second level accommodates the living spaces with a design that is in complete harmony with the first floor. Enjoy the photos and don’t forget to leave your comments below.
