In Kyo in Kanagawa, Japan by Takehiko Nez Architects

 
January 27th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Takehiko Nez Architects

The Japanese title “in kyo” is derived from a calm life apart from the active world for the rest of their days. Excessively ornamented mansions showing off surround the site in a rich green residential area. This modest house concealed its appearance in plant open to a neutral space such as a courtyard, a terrace, a garden, and the sidewalk between outdoor and indoor without steps.
