Concrete Structure House by Tadao Ando

Check out this concrete structure house designed by Japanese architecture firm Tadao Ando. The slope home plan is partially buried into the earth, becoming part of its surrounding landscape. Inside, exposed concrete walls give the house a modern industrial edge with a dark, mysterious aesthetic. The cool, cave-like rooms play with shadow and light through strategically placed slots and windows of varying proportions, which is enhanced thanks to the home’s under-ground design. A sunken courtyard further connects this contemporary concrete structure to the landscape. Tadao Ando
