‘nowhere but sajima’ by japanese yasutaka yoshimura architects, is a vacation residence located an hour distance from tokyo. it is a rare site situated adjacent to the ocean and mt. fuji and enoshima can be seen on the opposite shore. constructed with reinforced concrete the three storey residence features windows of all different shapes and sizes. the side facing towards the ocean is the northern area, and a road with a row of condominiums and heavy traffic run by its side. while the large building aperture enables an open view to the ocean, it also draws all the attention from the road and condominiums. several tubes are connected to form one room, and conversely, one tube is shared by two rooms.

the building is juts out onto the pacific ocean – as if suspended over water
the lounge and kitchen area
views looking out onto the ocean
a sliding bookshelf provides privacy between rooms
opening directly onto the ocean, the living quarters on the ground floor flow across four of the tubes
sunlight passes through the circular hole on the 3rd floor or seeps in softly between furniture and the ceiling, so there is no need to light any lamps during the daytime
the bathroom overlooking the water
to provide adequate privacy without the use of curtains, narrow tube-shaped spaces were bundled together and angled to provide openings toward the sea.
