Located on Mount Kamakura, this site boasts a stunning view overlooking Sagami Bay. The clients, a husband-and-wife couple who had been living in a high-rise condominium in downtown Tokyo, fell in love with the location at first sight, taking an instant liking to the view and the lush green surroundings, and decided to move here. The husband is a keen architecture buff who went on architectural tours throughout Europe to see buildings while he was working in the UK, and decided to commission a new residence with an attached workshop for his wife.

The house consists of rectangular volumes with concrete bases to which a white photocatalytic pigment has been applied. These volumes are staggered to create an overlapping effect that projects a modern sensibility while also embodying a certain Oriental aesthetic. As you descend the narrow slope while facing the ocean, the triangular pilotis at the entrance to the house come into view. This approach to the building also speaks eloquently of the unique features of the site.

The bedroom with attached glass-walled bath on the other side of the ground floor promises an unusual experience: by using the surrounding greenery as a “borrowed landscape”, a relaxing atmosphere similar to that of a resort hotel is created.

The sizes of the windows were calculated to frame panoramic views of the surrounding forest and ocean, while storage space, sinks and other amenities were stowed neatly into the walls. The most striking feature of this house, however, is the pentagonal roof made up of both steel and wooden beams.

Opening the sliding doors fully allows the inhabitants of this luxurious dwelling to connect with the nature outside the house, further embellishing the beauty of a building where the universal spirit of a particularly Japanese aesthetic resides.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaProject gallerySee allShow lessNantong Sports Center Winning Proposal / HennArticlesGlass Farm / MVRDVArticles Share Save this picture!© Masao Nishikawa+ 29 Share 2011 Le 49 / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSave this projectSaveLe 49 / APOLLO Architects & Associates ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeAPOLLO Architects & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesJapanPublished on March 27, 2012Cite: “Le 49 / APOLLO Architects & Associates” 27 Mar 2012.
