tokyo-based firm florian busch architects
has shared with us their recently completed ”A’ house in kisami’ within the shizuoka region of japan.
located at the tip of the izu peninsula, the retreat contrasts the owner’s bustling life of tokyo, approximately 180 kilometers north of the area.
positioned on a steep coastal hill, the structure overlooks the ocean and opens to the sights and sounds of the sea. the majority of the site’s
terrain underfoot is inclined to a 30 degree angle, requiring initial carving of the earth to inset two stacked volumes. the trapezoidal footprints
are rotated along a common central axis to form a central void, where the a spa zone has been inserted.
