* Residential Architecture: How to Catch the Mountain House by Tezuka Architects

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 22 May 2012

Residential Architecture: How to Catch the Mountain House by Tezuka Architects: “..comprising the facade, a line of glass doors may be slid outward and stacked together at opposing ends of the building footprint, entirely eliminating a perimeter enclosure and exposing the unified living and dining area to the outdoors..the continuous roof plane appears supported with a fireplace at the open corner while a discrete column takes on the loads. the kitchen is contained within free-standing wooden volumes, partially revealing its presence from view. leading directly from the grand living area, a bridge guides inhabitants towards a passageway to climb the small mountain adjacent to the dwelling. a spiral staircase descends into a recessed courtyard, offering access into the private bedroom spaces..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, wonderful views, marked indoor/outdoor sensibility..
