Traditional Japanese ArchitectureTraditional Japanese Architecture and interior design are amongst the most remarkable aspects of Japanese Culture. Earthquakes, volcanoes and typhoons necessitate houses be rebuilt or renewed more often than in other economically advanced countries. It could be one of the reasons explaining things like singular windows, built into thin walls; or small openings through walls straight to the outside (in kitchen or bathroom ventilation for example).
Most people however, upon closer examination, will eventually experience the subtle enchanting phenomena of Japanese creative work, as it uncovers itself gradually, and attracts repeatedly; to the point of being addictive.
Just like traditional Japanese garden with each step forward revealing to the eye yet another unexpected point of scenic beauty, so does Japanese exterior and interior design. In recent years cheaper standardized apartments lacking vernacular originality are slowly overtaking the residential areas of Japanese suburbs, flats in westernized multistory urban buildings in the city are frequently owned forms of property. Contemporary architecture built in traditional Japanese style will incorporate a modern, fire resistant version of traditional materials used from prehistoric times, namely natural wood and timber (for square posts and pillars; fragments of walls, widows, gates etc).
Stone and bricked earth (for filling the foundation) are now replaced with modern concrete materials.

Traditional Japanese architecture will include use of various kinds of resistant paper (for paper walls and sliding doors and windows).
Today, even those houses that are built to look venerable traditional style, will be non-burnable, earthquake-proof, and have hyper modern elements and fragments, such as modern flooring, appliances and equipment installed. The Traditional Japanese House By published at Monday, August 13th, 2012 was a attractive and amazing design. Because we love to share everything about dwelling design, interior design , furniture, and also architecture design idea. While watch at the photo of Traditional Japanese House By normally we can categorized the design as Architecture , independently as architecture design enthusiast I was so rhapsodical. When not Travelling, I am mainly in Miyazaki but am also available for some appointments in Tokyo on Request. In the course of history, architecture in Japan has been shaped by natural and artificially imposed factors; combined, of course, with the inherent Japanese aesthetic sense.
Taking into account mild climate, buildings historically took shape unsubstantial and light enough to allow for quick exit, and minimal injury during sudden tremors and possible collapse.

While those would be unthinkable in cold countries because they simply would mean death in frosty winter – in Japan are just not taken seriously.
The more you look, the more you discover about its truly unique allure, probably because it is closely entwined with the ultimate source of creativity itself – nature. Japanese people however, love their traditional architecture, so classic Japanese buildings with their distinctive roofs are prestigious in the country today, and are considered to equate quality, style, and also financial status, for being expensive. Tokonoma is a mini gallery, a creative space where an aesthetically pleasing art work like calligraphy or painting scroll, bonsai, Japanese dolls, ceramics, ikebana or other decorative items (okimono) can be displayed.
