French photographer Jérémie Souteyrat presents some of the best private houses in his adopted city of Tokyo. A documentary photographer by trade, it was only after moving to Japan that he taught himself how to photograph architecture. His desire to capture the tiny streets of Tokyo led to a personal project where he sought out the most interesting and surprising contemporary houses in the city’s residential neighbourhoods. He spent four years making images of these hidden architectural gems by a range of architects, including firms like Atelier Bow Wow, Go Hasegawa, Sou Fujimoto Architects, Shigeru Ban, and ALX. Includes an interview with Japanese architect Kengo Kuma.
