takanori ineyama architects has completed a small weekend residence for a couple that lives between the cities of tokyo and yamanashi, japan. located in a residential area in the city of hokuto, the site is lined with trees throughout its perimeter in order to establish a sense of distance with its surrounding environment.

the double-height residence is designed as a single space in which takanori ineyama has packed all everyday activities, including dining, cooking, living, and resting. split in two levels that are connected by a staircase, the multifunctional interior contains room for more private uses, such as sleeping, on the overhanging platform, while shared space is located on the ground floor. the house is surrounded by a decked terrace and an outdoor bath that ensures privacy through the surrounding tall walls.
