Overlooking the ocean in Kanagawa, Japan, the Seaside House uses a linear layout to maximize views. Minimal in form and color, the stark white reinforced concrete structure stands out from its more traditional neighbors. The lack of roadside windows provides the interior with privacy, while also directing full focus toward the water. Each room contains a floor-to-ceiling glazed wall, providing both undisrupted views of the sea and access to a cantilevered deck with a full-length swimming pool.
