located at the foot of mount rokko in japan, this residential property by y+M design office has been oriented to maximize views towards the neighboring inland sea. in order to preserve the natural terrain and vegetation, the reinforced concrete structure has a minimal footprint, ensuring that the home exists unobtrusively.

named ‘slide house’, the dwelling’s primary façade features an array of box-like frames that not only ensure privacy, but also act as brise-soleil – protecting against the region’s relatively warm climate. furthermore, the shading devices can be physically adjusted, meaning that the home’s inhabitants can configure internal space to suit their needs throughout the year.

provision for three parked cars is provided at basement level, with a spiral staircase leading to the home’s sleeping quarters above. primary living accommodation is found at the uppermost storey, where a kitchen and diner connects to a living room. an additional guest room is also provided, while adjoining terraces at the rear of the property offer views across the surrounding landscape.
