Minimalist Weekend Retreat With A View In Japan Would Suit A Lions Bay Address

With our city now so laughably unaffordable, thousands of Vancouverites are stuck imagining wonderful homes instead of living in them. “Spaced” is a record of our minds wandering the world of architecture and design, up and away from the unrewarding realities of shoebox condos, dark basement suites, and sweet fuck all on Craigslist.

(via) This minimalist house overlooking the Pacific near Osaka was built into a terraced hillside as a weekend retreat for clients keen on taking it easy (the big bath is a dead giveaway). Described as a “playground for grownups” by local architecture firm Process5 Design, the “T Weekend Residence” comes complete with several decks (including a stunning rooftop promenade) as well as its very own swing. We’d happily take ours somewhere near the Village of Lions Bay on the Sea-To-Sky Highway overlooking Howe Sound.

We’d Totally Live in This Wine Cellar High Up in the Tyrol

We Want This Beautiful, Shinsuke Fujii-Designed Home in Yokohama

We want the hell out of this house. The beautiful cherry trees would have to come with it. Otherwise the deal is off.
