Japanese architecture RingHouse

Japanese architecture is based on aesthetics and the natural environment, as we already mentioned in our latest post about Japanese architecture & interior design; that is why I was not surprised to hear that the new Ring House by Takei Nabeshima Architects was awarded Best Private House, in the Wallpaper Design Awards 2008.

Japanese Ring House design by Makoto Takei and Chie Nabeshima (TNA) is a stunning example for Japanese architecture. The Ring House is a weekend house in Karuizawa, Japan. It is a three story mini-tower made from glass and wood, offering uninterrupted 360-degree views thus keeping the viewer as close to nature as can be.

This Japanese house design blends gracefully into the surroundings while during the day, this glass structure is flooded with light and by night it glows when lit from within.
