Tiny Shell House in Japanese Forest by Toni Mirari

Tono Mirai Architects has designed a small creative house in the forest of Nagano Prefecture in Japan (be sure to check 10 Must Visit Places in Japan), that has a shell-like appearance. The client requested a home that would have “architecture that is unusual, beautiful, and does not make you feel old in time”. The result is a house that has unique curves, and is open to the trees.

The small house was built using materials like local wood and clay, and crafted using traditional building techniques. Dark wood shingles cover the curved exterior, while recessed windows and skylights capture small amounts of natural light, and a light wood door welcomes guests.
