Speaking of breathtaking houses in Japan, Suishouhen House is certainly one of the houses to include in the category. The house is a 2012 project which is located in Nagoya and Tomoaki Uno Architects was responsible for architecting the house.
The house itself, however, cannot be explained without first explaining about the Katsura Imperial Villa and Farnsworth House by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe as this house was inspired by the two said architectural icons.
Uniquely enough, the Katsura Imperial Villa and Farnsworth House by Mies themselves are actually very different from each other.
Katsura Imperial Villa is a structure which was built in the mid 1600â€™s and it has influenced, for instance, Le Corbustier and Bauhaus founder, Walter Gropius. As for Farnsworth House by Mies, it constitutes a home that was built in the 1940â€™s and it is still considered one of the best examples of modern design even now.
The fact that Suishouhen House is a house that was inspired by these two very different architectural icons, of course, makes the house very interesting.
Built in Nagoya, Suishouhen House is a house constructed for a family of five and it has a basement floor, first floor, and second floor. The basement floor, as well as the first floor in this house is reinforced concrete whereas the second floor is steel.
As the house is inspired by Farnsworth House by Mies, there has been one of the people who take interest in the house who said that if Mies was Japanese, he might have designed a house like Suishouhen House.
There are various things that make Suishouhen House interesting aside from the fact that it is inspired by two different architectural icons and the fact that in the house, various pieces of wooden furniture are used is one of them.
Located in Nagoya, Japan, the house is also a house that is located in an environment on which various trees grow and thus, making the house a place where people can stay and enjoy fresh breeze in.
