Arboleda House


From the firm of Horibe Associates comes a conflicted home in Tokushima, Japan. From the get go, the design was one based on contradiction. The client envisioned a sleek exterior of a sports car with a warm wooden interior. Horibe’s solution was a sleek metal-encased structure disguising a spare, exposed frame interior. Predictable Japanese efficient and restrained use of space is abound, while a small loft for the owner’s husband, as well as several small triangular windows, capitalize on the irregular angles of the building’s envelope.
