“House in Matsuyama” was built in Shikoku Island for a young couple who has three boys – for Japanese it’s a big family. This unique house situated near by the Seto Inland Sea perfectly matches the atmosphere of the region where the climate is mild even in winter. It was designed by Hirokazu Suemitsu and Yoko Suemitsu, a husband-and-wife team of architects based in Tokyo who go by the name ‘SUEP.’.

I LOVE this house and wish I had grown up in a house like this. My only concern… I hope the boys are not going to rip ‘n shred the beautiful deck with their skateboards.
