Architect Go Hasegawa collaborated with San Francisco–based company Airbnb to craft this two-story dwelling, clad in Yoshino cedar, as a combination community center and guest accommodation, with the first floor serving as a cozy public area for the townspeople to relax and chat and the second floor providing space for travelers and guests. After House Vision 2016, the prototype will be moved to the town of Yoshino and listed on Airbnb.
A modern 246 sq.ft. tiny house designed and built by Nashville, Tennessee-based New Frontier Tiny Homes. Shou Sugi Ban cedar siding contrasts beautifully against the natural red western cedar. Inside, you'll find hardwood floors and a reclaimed barn wood ceiling.
