Wood makes the Hazukashi House

We stumbled across the Hazukashi House in Kyoto, Japan, while exploring Creative Boom and immediately wanted to move our belongings in.

The use of wood within the interiors of the house is fabulous. From the coastal bleached walls and glowing golden tones of the staircase, to the rich and dark dining furniture, it all works beautifully together.

Designed by Alts Design Office, the architects emphasise the home’s narrow and tall shape by creating doorways, windows and shelving that are also narrow and tall. The concept makes brilliant use of the space and light.

While the house is undoubtedly contemporary and practical, it’s still homely and warm. The fact that every room is visually connected and the doorways and windows are pointed gives the home an almost Medieval chapel feel.

You can see loads more photographs and other projects over at Alts Design Office website.
