Japanese home design: Efficiency at it’s finest

I have always been a fan of Japanese designs. Their concepts usually generates 2 feel from me. 1. efficiency 2. clean.

It is incredible how the japanese use their space since most of their homes are smaller in size, it has become somewhat essential to them to maximize their home space.

Japanese culture is known to praise efficiency, which comes forth in many different ways. One of the most obvious, that these photos explore, is the way in which a traditional Japanese house is situated. Without much square footage, this largely wood-paneled home manages to make space for every essential part of a house, without wasting any area. From hidden tables to tucked away kitchens, the house is decidedly efficient and overwhelmingly serene.
