K-HOUSE in Nagoya city, Japan by D.I.G Architects

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Article source: D.I.G Architects

A small house located on a steep slanting slope. The client simply wanted a life with a blessing of nature nearby and the beautiful townscape in distance. The site was steeply sloped down, almost like a cliff, leaving only a narrow platform wide enough for a car. We first had an idea to excavate the ground to generate a living space.  Corresponding the nature form, heterogeneous and flexible space would retrieve the enchantment of the site. Not a house constructed on a cliff, but a habitat generated by the nature form of the cliff. A habitat like a pit or a shed posteriorly discovered in the terrains of landscape.
