Appreciations towards FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects for providing the following description:


This house is planned on a site where there are beautiful views of the country side. The request from the client was for the creation of intimacy, but with a large living area.

▼乡村环境,the rural context


The exterior is designed as a monumental form so that it can be seem to be a new addition to the countryside scenery.

▼住宅外观,exterior view

▼宏大的体量,monumental form

▼入口路径,entry way

▼玄关,entry hall

▼细部,detailed view


I created a centripetal plan where each room is connected through a corridor from the multi-level living area. Around the corridor, walls, which have different textures and shapes, make a sequence inside the space.

▼客厅,living room

▼墙壁呈现出不同的肌理和形状,walls with different textures and shapes

▼客厅楼梯,stair from the living room


The walls and spaces are highlighted by natural, indirect light, so your eyes are drawn to, and focus on, the interior: by the basic processes of manipulating and controlling “light” and “views”, I tried to make the inside space more intimate and deeper.

▼景观庭院带来自然的漫射光,the natural, indirect light brought by the landscaped


Rather than doing large gestures of acrobatic space composition, I have instead created what I feel is a space that represents the unusual, by doing small and poetic movements that control light and the viewers eyes.
