Elegance transcends throughout the concrete structure of ‘Shelton’s House’ in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan. Created by Japanese architect Shuwa Tei of Tokyo based practice Intentionallies, this dwelling accomplishes simplicity within the striking sharp angles and clean lines of its design.
Separate entrances reside on either side of the abode giving residents a choice of entrance. The lower part of the stairway almost seems like it was intricately carved from a concrete block. The surface material of the stairs create a harmonious change to deep hued wooden planks while it leads up to the decking of the terrace. The surrounding neighborhood is easily viewed from the upper level kitchen through a series of sliding doors that open up to the outdoor veranda.
