bishamon house by suppose design office is located in the city of hiroshima. the building serves both as shop and residence and is built on an elevated slope in order to provide an unhindered view of the landscape.

they based their design of the house using a frame  that is usually use to construct a swing. with  this kind of strong framework in place, a stable building is created while eliminating the need for land clearing.

  • Simultaneously awe inspiring and terrifying. A beautiful space… made all the more so by how it is seemingly perched on the hillside.
