Located near the center of Tokyo this home proves that a little bit of geometry goes a long way!

Clad lavishly the house shouts out luxury while also offering a classic and stylish look thanks to its wooden surfaces. It was designed to offer the best view of the ocean with the public area the kitchen dining room and living room all set onto the top floor. The middle floor sports the bedrooms which also offer a wonderful view while providing the necessary privacy and the bottom floor consists of parking area and beach room along many more.
The 2200 feet home sports a living room dining space a spacious terrace and a pool and each of these is visually integrated with the other leading to interiors that seem both spacious and naturally connected. The ergonomic and unconventional décor on the inside also give the home an exceptional look. The smart use of glass ensures that the home’s owners still get wonderful view of the sands and the waves as they wake up each morning.
Even the floor-to-ceiling glass windows are encapsulated in gorgeous wooden frames and while the home’s interiors exude all the traits of a contemporary home the extravagant use of wood does give it a very refined look. With an interior that even sports a ‘Zen garden’ this is indeed about bringing a touch of Asia into California!
Modern houses are becoming more and more innovative and bold when it comes to experimenting with various styles patterns and designs. The idea is to try and create a home that gives the owner exactly what he is looking for while it also stands out from the pack and showcases the skill and ingenuity of those who have designed it.
By using the tried and tested design of the conventional Vietnamese along with a few new twist and incorporating a small interior garden and large roof opening that allow for natural ventilation and a refreshing breath of fresh air the home brings together the best of both worlds.
All of us at some point in our childhood have spent a summer or two up in a tree house and if you have not then you surely have missed out on some great memories.

While most modern homes and structures are at odds with nature and at times seem out of place the fits right in.
