Shift House by Kino Architects

Shift House is a minimal residence located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Kino Architects. The two-story wooden apartment features a mostly black exterior with segregated angular roofs that create a striking overall appearance for the building. The interior serves as a stark contrast against the black facade, and features a mostly white or natural color palette. The angular rooftops are expressed as double-height ceilings within the house, and creates a feeling of expansiveness.
