Completed just last month, Seya House is a gorgeous residence that rethinks the boundaries between yard and home.

Taking advantage of materials, Makoto Tanijiri of Suppose Design Office creates a gentle transition between the driveway and entrance. The entrance itself is an extension of the home and it’s unclear, until you remove your shoes and ascend upon those sexy cantilever stairs, exactly what part of the home you are in.

I’ve been seeing it used in a lot of homes recently, but I love the unfinished feel that the exposed plywood brings to the home, and the contrast it provides against the concrete. It’s as if the architects started with a yard and designed a home around it.
