Zen Style Japanese Architecture a contemporary two-volume house by Naf Architect & Design
Japanese corporate architecture Naf Architect & Design created the house style of Zen: a contemporary house with two volumes of separate structures that are still together. Use the same material in each volume – lots of glass and wood – creating a sense of continuity. Greenhouse walls provide natural light, and exposed wooden beams and framing to give this minimalist interior looked strong and structured. However, despite their physical similarities, the houses were mirror images play very different roles. One volume is used in day-to-day, single-family residence, while others provide privacy as a work space, for entertaining and accommodating guests, or perhaps as a second suite.
