Modern Japan Architecture by Terunobu Fujimori – Unknown Japanese Architecture

The unique Yakisugi House in Nagano, Japan, blends modern design innovation with traditional Japanese architecture and a French inspiration, for a truly one-of-a-kind house design. As a teacher of architectural history, it’s interesting that professor and architect Terunobu Fujimori prefers to stray from contemporary Japan in his own modern residential designs. For Yakisugi House, the inspiration came from the compact cave dwellings near the Caves of Lascaux in France. The cave concept comes to fruition in Yakisugi House in the main living/dining area, which leads to the study, two bedrooms, and the home’s crowning glory – a tearoom hidden in a mini tower at the top-front portion of the house. This unusual residential design comes clad in charred cedar boards, and surrounded by 1,825m2 of landscaped property, sculptural plants and a spring-fed stream. Terunobu Fujimori
