Contemporary Japanese House Design – Boukyo House

Thu, Dec 25, 2008 | Modern home designs | By Mike

Boukyo house is situated in Sapporo, Japan. The city is the most famous for hosting 1972 Winter Olympics and it’s also the fifth biggest city in Japan. The house is designed by Nakayama Architects. One of the project targets was to cover the maximum cubic meters that the budget will permit. The idea was to separate as far as possible the private areas of the house ? two bedrooms and one bathroom ? and the public areas ? A workroom, living room, dining room and kitchen. As the result all areas ended up on different levels.

    Guess that just goes to show you, you can’t judge by what’s on the outside. I mean the exterior looks run down, but the inside looks amazing.
    Good job :)

    Wow, looks like a great place to host parties. Love the outside too!

    This can’t be in Japan, there is no Sweet & Sour Pork on the table or banzai tree with a spray bottle!!!

  4. Jim Says:

    How could anyone live in such a sterile environment? It looks like they do chemistry experiments in this………….lab. Where’s the love man?

  5. Mike Says:

    Jim, there are much more cold interiors in Japan. That one is even quite warm. If you look through the site you will see that.

  6. Wally Stryk Says:

    I know this sounds like a blatant add but I’m quite serious. When you have what appears to be a sterile and somewhat harsh environment the decor is vital to making it habitable. Color, texture, plants and here we go…my line of home decor could make this a stuning environment. Judge the my line (asianartimports.com) aspect for yourself. I’m open to comments.

  7. Linda Says:

    Darn….this has so many possibilities…..but you left it too cold. Change it and picture yourself spending your life there……….

  8. sixmats Says:

    I think that’s a really cool house. But it is definitely not the norm in Japan.

    My impression is that the great human creativity has no limits
    thanks Great job.

  10. Gayla Says:

    This is a super-gorgeous work of art. I wonder what it would look like with stuff in it, like books and toys.

    Attention: Stephen Ackart

    ‘Banzai’ is a military tactic, a rapid and direct charge. I believe you meant bonsai trees. Oh, and sweet ‘n sour pork is Chinese.

    Moving along…

    What a gorgeous design this is. It’s one that polarises opinion – most will either love or hate it. And, frankly, if it pleased everyone it’d be a failure. It has just enough texture and light-play, a really amazing intensity about it, and interesting proportions. I’d move in without blinking twice. Stunning!

    Simple and Amazing

    It’s awesome, but it looks so lonely
