Modern Architecture

Built at the foot of the Yatsugatake Mountains in Nagano Prefecture, Japan, this house looks as though it is floating. The minimalist design is not only breathtaking, but was indeed the architects intention:

When you are invited to the entrance-way, after passing through the restrained space of the hallway,  you enter a dramatic space, with magnificent and impressive scenery spreading before your eyes. This space is an extravagant experience that only those privileged enough to be welcomed here can enjoy.
