The White Cave House from Takuro Yamamoto Architects – Kanazawa City, Japan

Japan just keeps churning out incredible builds, here’s another to get stuck into. Takuro Yamamoto Architects designed this one with Kanazawa city’s heavy snowfall in mind. So, what better way to protect yourself then with a big white cave? For days when the weather’s a little kinder, a terrace and huge central courtyard surrounded by glass, giving a view into the living/dining/kitchen space. A traditional Japanese room, an incredible roof terrace with water held by a thin waterproof membrane and more minimal goodness than you can shake a stick at. Take a look.
