japanese firm kidosaki architects studio has recently completed the ‘house in asamayama’ for a client who spent years looking for the right site. perched on a steep incline, the house projects out at a tangent from the roadside, almost navigating over a sea of trees towards mount asama. three reinforced concrete planes act as stilts for the base of the residence where a steel structure frames the livable space.

 

a clerestory on the southern facade brings natural light into the private bedrooms while the public areas are arranged in a linear fashion with a glass wall oriented towards the mountains. an outdoor terrace wraps the northwestern side so the owner may be outdoors at the forefront of the landscape. wood planks wrap the exterior of the dwelling to create a dialogue with its natural environment.

    I am confident the walking paths have been considered before construction. It actually does make sense. There is no bathroom attached to the guest room. Obviously guests use only bath present and that will make for a great experience with that view. This is not going to be a house for a family with children so access to the bath from the bedroom is not really an issue.

  • The floor plan makes no sense. No direct path to the large tub in the bathroom. Have to go out in the hallway to access bath, and then go back out in the hallway, to get into the bedroom and then walk across that room to access the closet. Love the outside, but the inside, and particularly the Master Bedroom…#fail.
