The most recent addition to Yuusuke Karasawa Architects portfolio of work is the “S House” which can be found near the Omiya station in the Japanese prefecture of Saitama. Yuusuke Karasawa is an architectural designer born, raised and educated in Tokyo, and founded his self-titled company in 2006. Since then, his team have been responsible for some of the most unusual and intricately executed work seen today. The S House, reminiscent of M.C. Escher’s piece ‘Relativity’ combines the use of negative space and layered interconnectivity to present an homage to a physical representation to our cyber lives. Despite its levels of complexity, the structure flows effortlessly from the basement floor to the rooftop deck. This is literally an architectural representation of the adage: ‘You must see it to believe it’.
