Like toy blocks nestled playfully into the snow, the eight houses of Foxwood estate present an interesting mise en scène. The project responds to the increasing housing need for both locals and visitors who flock annually to Niseko’s winter sports playground. Rather than simply adding to the statistics, Foxwood sets the precedence for thoughtful house design. Local references also make it an ambassador for Niseko’s building culture.

Designed like a small village, the houses bear similar tectonics and materiality but have individual nuances. They sit in animated dialogue with one another and with the natural setting bordered by white birch forests and snow-capped mountains.
