Reminiscent of the traditional Japanese architecture this fascinating house is defined by two major interior spaces connected to the surrounding landscape. One of these spaces is used for living dining and cooking while the other space shelters an engawa – Japanese “in-between space” – and the master bedroom.
The living area is full of distinctive furniture by Studio Rolf.fr that includes chairs wrapped in bandages and cabinets that appear to sliced in half. The exposed and painted brickwork walls have visible traces of stripped away floor joists whereas the new partitions and floors are timber painted grey.
Overhangs are provided to protect the glass from rain and sun. Wherever timber is used it is teak to prevent termite attack. Being located in the forest the main setbacks are humidity and maintenance. However reinforced concrete is used to reduce the occurrence of maintenance.
Resting in the midst of abundant greenery the house looks fabulous from one end of the curved road that leads to the site. Large timber panels are used to line the wall and that adds to the vibrant look of this massive architecture. Glass panels are provided to give you an unobstructed view of all the beautiful scenes around.
