House of Kashiba is a delightful Japanese home designed by the architects from Horibe Naoko Architect Office in a minimalist manner. The building is located in Kashiba-Shi, Japan and the total living surface is 85.58 square meters. Here is more information from the project developers: “The clients for this project requested a bath from which they could gaze out on a courtyard. We planted a symbol tree in the courtyard and designed the bathroom to look out over it.The courtyard brings light and breezes into the bathroom and kitchen/living/dining room while maintaining privacy for those inside. The exterior is a black box with square windows on the southern side. The windows provide an accent to the facade while also smoothly linking the exterior and interior of the house.” We really appreciate the design of this ingenious “black box” that manages to make the most out of a tight site. How do you find it?
