On a plot of land that is surrounded by traditional looking houses, this building really stands out in the crowd. This modern house was completed in 2012 by Jun Igarashi Architects and is located in the suburbs of Sapporo, Japan. The plot is typical for an area where the elevation difference between the road and land is very high so the view from the house is better than expected. Like most other houses in Japan, the relatively small land area creates a space that is perfect for a narrow and tall building like this one. The exterior of the house looks very minimalistic in appearance, and this design choice continues through into the interior of the house.
