House in Kitakarasuyama, Japan by Mizuishi Architects Atelier

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Article source: Mizuishi Architects Atelier  

This is a small house built in the corner plot that is before coming to a dead end. Residents are husband and wife and two young boys. It is the location of the favorable conditions facing the roads in south and east. But because the neighborhood residents come and go , it was a challenge how to take the outside and how to open the inside, even while making living areas calm.

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Article source: UNarquitectura

The request was to build a tree house…

Located on the creek, elevated by pilotis, it is accessible through a bridge and has views at the level of the foliage of trees.

The house “breaks” adapting to the slope and differentiating the private and public space within a single enclosure. It also captures the views of the forrest and the sky.
