Browse Japanese style houses for sale in Greater Seattle, WA.
Traditional Japanese influence on American architecture and design is significant and can be seen throughout the US. Iconic American architect Frank Lloyd Wright was fascinated by Japanese wood prints and the elements that married indoors and outdoors together. Architecture firm Greene and Greene was also greatly influenced by Japanese design.
Japanese concepts are visible in mid-century modern design. Calm, understated, and refined design are all pillars of Japanese aesthetics, as well as neutral color palettes, horizontality, and modular organization.
Other features include minimalism and simplicity, lack of decoration, strong and clean lines, open floor plans, and the highlighting and incorporating of nature are among the reasons why Japanese styles are a popular choice.
Sliding doors, windows, and room dividers (known as shōji), plain walls, glass walls, built-in furniture, and deep overhanging eaves with exposed rafters are more examples of Japanese architecture and design.
