House in Ookayama by Torafu Architects - The combination of different woods adds a richness and history to it's very "new" surroundings. I am personally a firm believer in mixed wood design, mostly because it's earth-friendly.
Love the off form concrete and the retractable skylight over the kitchen island. Cemetaries scare me, but this house which is situated on one, makes it look beautiful. Elliott House – North London, by Eldridge-Smerin Architects. Dream kitchen right here.
