Japanese architect Saturo Inoue designed this modern home, the Tsuchinoco House, tucked up on the hill nestled amongst more traditional and older Japanese homes.
The two-story home is small but with very high ceilings and angled walls which allow light to flow through the house and views of the water from just about every room.
