We’re deeply in love with Japanese home architecture and Japanese floor plan. The Japanese house design is surprisingly free. The Japanese home design is so simple in design. At night and in winter, one can shut out the world and the Japanese interior design can becomes a box divided up into rooms. What we also love on Japanese residence is that on the summer, one opens up all the doors, sliding screens and sliding doors and the house becomes free like a tent where air gently passes.
Well, this is almost similar to the description of this Airhole house which was designed by Masahiro Kinoshita from KINO architects, a Tokyo based Architecture Company. The unusual looking of the Japanese two-storey home is located in Shiga, a residential area in Japan.
This modern minimalist Japanese house features with large gaps in its structure allowing natural ventilation and the air gently passes. Here is more information from the architects with its modern Japanese floor plan which doesn’t neglect the traditional Japanese home design: The main form of the house was dictated by the shape of the site. On the street level, a covered parking spot is generated by carving out an air hole that opens up east to west. The main entrance is also provided through this space. More predominantly noticeable from the main street to the south is the asymmetrical roof line and terrace space on the second level. Funneled in form, the open volume accommodates the outdoor veranda and the living/dining/kitchen area. The west wall offers storage while the pie-shaped space to the east houses the staircase, bathroom and washitsu (or Japanese-style room)
