Look Inside Villa Ito’s Expansive Private Courtyard

We take a look at Villa Ito, a home near the coast of central Japan. Nakahira Architects designed with the idea of an open-style living space that still had a sense of privacy from the outside world. The structure is centered around an open courtyard and patio where large windows and sliding doors create a seamless transition between them and the indoor spaces. Surrounding trees create a natural enclave, partially concealing the home from street level. See the space in the gallery above.
