Eye-Catching F-House in Japan that Features a Unique Façade of a Crisp White Sheet of Paper with a Folded Edge by Yukio Hashimoto

Japanese architect Yukio Hashimoto designed the ‘F-House’, a two-storey residence in Kyoto, Japan. What makes this home unique is its façade composed of a crisp white sheet of paper with a folded edge that can be associated with the traditional art of origami. Its traditional Japanese interiors feature no visible windows as well as an internal courtyard that hides an inner garden.

Description by the architect:

The simple fold is intended to provide buoyancy to the simple wall surface which would otherwise seem closed and weighty. This residence has a simple and modern structure but its essence is in passing on architectural space that is traditional to Japan.
