This house is located in the village where the old houses built irregulary along the slope.
When I first saw this village, I was fascinate with the view. The view of all those old houses
along the slop looked so neat and organized, and also the ridgeline of
the mountain and sky looked so clear and beautiful.
When I designed this house I made sure to match with surroundings environment.
Triky part of this site was the shape. This site’s shape was irregular and there were some steps.
Therefore, I divided this house into three volume so the house could fit
in the site’s shape without be bigger than other houses.
The characteristic roof blends well with roof gradient of the neighbour houses,
and also harmonized with the ridigeline of the mountains.
The residence of this house can feel the relationship with those old houses, mountains and sky.
