We love the look of this wood-framed home from Japan’s Studio Aula. Located in Shiojiri, Nagano, the homeowner wanted the home to highlight the existing garden with a healthy nod to traditional Japanese architecture. An abundance of exposed wood beams and an eye toward multi-functional spaces come together to create a compelling, cozy interior tucked inside an unassuming facade. For more, visit dezeen.
