Studio Aula, an architecture firm local to Shiojiri, Japan, was asked to create a house for an urban neighborhood, keeping the home modern while featuring traditional Japanese elements. The result is a beautiful chunky timber interior featuring exposed crisscrossing frames, which allows light to circulate throughout the bottom floor. The house also makes use of an existing garden, highlighted with a stepping-stone path leading to the doorway and shielded by the placement of the extending bedroom. Browse the gallery above to get a full understanding of the modern Japanese home.
