Residential Architecture: House in Asamayama by Kidosaki Architects Studio: “..japanese firm kidosaki architects studio has recently completed the ‘house in asamayama’ for a client who spent years looking for the right site. perched on a steep incline, the house projects out at a tangent from the roadside, almost navigating over a sea of trees towards mount asama. three reinforced concrete planes act as stilts for the base of the residence where a steel structure frames the livable space. a clerestory on the southern facade brings natural light into the private bedrooms while the public areas are arranged in a linear fashion with a glass wall oriented towards the mountains. an outdoor terrace wraps the northwestern side so the owner may be outdoors at the forefront of the landscape. wood planks wrap the exterior of the dwelling to create a dialogue with its natural environment..” Extensive glazing, natural light, views; horizontal wood cladding..
