This Japanese House Has Signature Curved Floors And Walls

Japan-based architecture practice Takeshi Hosaka Architects has designed a stunning house in Byoubugaura, Yokohama (aptly named ‘House in Byoubugaura’) with signature curved floors and walls.

The house is set apart by sweeping, curved floors. This relatable to the Byoubugaura area in Yokohama, Japan, where there are plenty of rolling hills.

In order to make use of the small piece of land it inhabits, the house had to be built vertically. With its unique curved feature, the three-storey house appears the size of a two-storey building.

It is built with materials of polished concrete, timber, steel and glass, with a beautifully implemented spiral staircase to connect the different levels.
