There was popular Japanese manga series in the mid 60’s to early 70’s where one character always was saying the word “Baqueratta”. Nowadays there is an architecture firm called Baqueratta in Tokyo led by Yoshiyuki Moriyama. They specialize in building contemporary minimalist small and middle sized residences. One of their latest works is AC House. Awesome combination of black and light gray colors on the house’s exterior and combination of white and wooden colors in the interior make it comfortable inside and extravagant outside. Purely black courtyard with a tree in the middle is one thing that make this house unforgettable. Using marble around the AC house add it more luxury than its size which isn’t the small one.
