As if we did not see enough of their creativity already, here is another interesting example of modern Japanese architecture. Designed by studio Edward Suzuki Architecture, the F Residence is located in Kamakura, a city located in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is difficult not to observe the museum-like design features of this unusual crib, derived from the idea of building a project that would look inward, rather than expand towards the outdoors. Here is more information from the architects: “The theme, ‘Go in to go out’, was applied to the design of this house and, as a result, the rectangular silhouette of the house was pushed to the boundary limits of the 776 square meter property in the center of which was placed a 15-meter diameter circular patio. The thrust of the planning was to allow each and every room to face and to have a view of this central garden“. On Freshome we usually see projects that take full advantage of their surrounding environment. How would you comment on the alternative presented by the F Residence?
