Uniquely Tokyo: A Compilation of Unique Tokyo Houses

Yes, this is a house (in Tokyo)!

Yes, this is a house (in Tokyo)!

Another great piece from DeZeen, a leading architecture and design magazine, and the winner of numerous awards for journalism and publishing. This time it is a collection of interesting and unique houses across Tokyo from a professional photographer who spent four years on this project. French photographer Jérémie Souteyrat trained himself to photograph architecture after moving to Tokyo, by hunting down and documenting some of the best private houses in his adopted city. He had moved from Paris to Tokyo in 2009 and was a freelance professional photographer at that time.

“Tokyo has no style, that’s why I like it. It’s full of surprises, even though it’s not a total mess – everything is very organised,” he says in the essay. “Architecture photography is often only PR photography, so I had a documentary approach: no lies, the pictures had to tell what the houses look like when they are used.”

These photographs form part of Souteyrat’s Tokyo No Ie (Tokyo Houses) series, which has now been released as a book by French publisher Le Lézard Noir, with an afterword by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma.
