Japanese architects (and their clients) have a well earned reputation for producing adventurous designs for residential buildings. House H, designed by Hiroyuki Shinozaki, is a great example.
The house is located in the city of Matsudo on the outskirts of Tokyo and was designed for a young family who wanted a forward looking living space. From the outside the building takes on the shape of a stereotypical house with a classic pitched roof. Inside, instead of conventional floors and columns, there are 8 Y-shaped wooden frames which resemble tree trunks. These support the roof as well as 6 platforms of different sizes and at different levels, which act as living spaces for the family. This design allows plenty of light to penetrate the internal apace and provide a wonderful sense of fluidity throughout the house, creating a serene space which encourages the residents to explore and interact.

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
