Big picture windows facing a vista of 50-year-old cherry blossom trees define this residence. A neighbor’s tall retaining wall borders the southern edge of the property, which meant that even if we oriented ground floor rooms towards the south they would get little natural light. On the other hand, a broad road with excellent views of the cherry trees runs along the northern edge of the property.We therefore settled on a plan that actively incorporates light and views on the northern side of the house. Picture windows of various sizes provide abundant light and a sense of openness despite the northern orientation, and accent the façade as well.
Once created, architecture has significant influence on townscape,
surrounding people as well as the environment, regardless of its background.
It will remain on that ground for decades
whether it blends into the location or not, or if it’s treasured.
No just design or capabilities, but focus on various architectural essence.
Timeless longevity endeared for years, and guarding people’s lives…
this is the concept we pursue.
