Japanese Houses By William Edward Summers
Each of the houses bears the name of the North American city from which Summers drew inspiration. There is the Charleston, based on the Colonial architecture of that South Carolina city, complete with fanciful balconies and shutters; the Lake Tahoe, which features a facade reminiscent of a ski lodge, and the Vancouver, which could easily slip into a neighborhood in British Columbia without causing a ripple. To view elevations of the three houses, you can visit Summers’ web page at www.designenvelope.com.
