The house is sited on a tree lined suburban road in Cheshire and was designed for a young family couple. On the road, the house types are suburban; conservative, bland and mock traditional. Our approach was to create a fresh contemporary version of the suburban house type; one that reacts to its context and is tailored to suit the specific needs of the client.

Geo Metria in Kanagawa, Japan by MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

Article source: MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

Structure of the land
On the crest of Hakone´s mountain range along the Odawara plain is a site. It´s sunny rolling hillside was once planted with fruit trees. On the south side you have a clear view of the distant Sagami Bay, north of the site a mountain gives shelter from the north wind. Deciduous broad-leaved trees cast soothing shadow in summer, in winter they shed their leaves and allow weak sunlight to warm up the moist mountain soil. The perfect living environment was there, waiting quietly to be found. Rather than bringing a new priciple that is not derived from the land in order to complete a „normal“ house, a place of habitability should be established here.
