To design a house on such a unique site, we carefully surveyed the nature and surroundings.We then, chose a shape as if it was carved from the terrain.

The house is designed to snuggle up to the surrounding mountains, providing air, light, and water passages.

When you enter the house, a large space overlooking the stairs, atrium, and study opens up.The wall storage which effectively reused the surplus wood stands along the side.

The ground floor opens towards the courtyard which gains plenty of natural light and maintains privacy at the same time.

On the other hand, the 1st floor has various common spaces and windows which visitors can enjoy a unique view of the mountains from them.

Outdoor pilotis, courtyards, and balconies are equally treated as a room.

The inner pitched roof incorporates rain presence into the space.

By interweaving the outdoors and the indoors without distinction, the boundary becomes ambiguous, so that you can feel a rich space with many places.

Live with Yato, open to the mountains, and listen to the sounds of the mountains.

That is to live in harmony with nature. No matter how strong an artificial object is, it cannot withstand the forces of nature.

This is a house that harmonizes nature and coexists with it. *Yato: a beautiful valley.
