SAI Architecture Design Office have recently completed this family home in Osaka, Japan, that has perfectly incorporated both indoors and outdoors. The architects decided to place the building on the North side in order to maximize a garden space.

The tree that is central to the home gives the family the opportunity to sit inside, but still have a wonderful view of the surrounding landscape. With this, I feel as though Japanese architecture firms get it right every time. They all understand the perfect ratio of not having too much nor too little, but only incorporating the simplest of materials and colours.
