Description of The Project

The owner spent quite a few years to find this site, therefore the architect’s main concern was to link the beautiful vast sea of trees spread out to Mt. Asama (Asamayama in Japanese) with internal space.

First of all, we can enjoy a sea of trees from the approach deck to the entrance. When one opens the large door to the living room, Mt. Asama appears in the picture window frame that is formed by the deep and low-height eaves.

This scenery is the best part of the view. Furthermore, the architects designed the bathroom to look at Mt. Asama when taking a bath. A magnificent view of the Mt. Asama and the sky seen from the wide deck terrace is really amazing.

To realize the most suitable view, Kidosaki Architects Studio inspected the relationship between Mt. Asama and the building. They made amendments several times, at each planning and construction stage.

Each house design should tell a story. The architects say “I think a life will be dwelled in a house, when you can tell the story of why it became so, and about every part of the building design.
