F House by Hashimoto Yukio Design Studio

Located in the Gion neighborhood in Kyoto, the F House is a two-storey residence with a crisp folded corner in facade looks like a white folded paper or a dog ear.

Designed by Japanese architect Yukio Hashimoto, this house has a simple and modern structure but its essence is in passing on architectural space that is traditional to Japan, such as an internal courtyard hides an inner garden.

Inspiration from architect:

Like pure white paper, this building’s facade has a small crease which brings forth images of origami. The simple fold is intended to provide buoyance to the simple wall surface which would otherwise seem closed and weighty.
