  1. Does this house look somewhat Japanese to you?

  2. FLW was very interested in Japanese culture and many elements of his designs reflect this. In this house I think it's the wide eaves and low hip roof that give the effect. Well, maybe the colors as well which are reminiscent of a Shoji screen with the cream which would be the paper and the brown which would be the wood frame.

  3. Yeah, I think the eaves and roof suggested Japan to me.
