House on the Mountainside in Hyogo, Japan by Keiichi Hayashi Architect

 
April 13th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Keiichi Hayashi Architect

The house rises on the mountainside and is surrounded by a forest. Six skipping floors, each of them has different purpose, are planned alongside the slope. Each floor is designed to be homogenous, but only the position of the windows is designed randomly on each floor to allow you to have different views of the forest. As you go upper floors, space on each floor stays homogenous, but view of the forest on each floor, changes like root of trees on lower floors, trunks on middle floors and top of trees on upper floors. In other word, the space on each floor is differentiated by relationship with height of the forest. The atmosphere in the house changes as you move from floor to floor on which you experience each time a different outside environment.
