Holiday house, Tatesina Kogen House : #0408

This house is located in the most highest place in the Tatesina Kogen resort villa.

This reconstructed house is located in the stunning vista and you can view the Yatsugatake. It is an important theme of how the outer and inner spaces can be combined and how the inner and outer floor plate can be standardized with the same material, red ceder. In order to not disturb the view, the tip of the deck was lowered.

The original walls were removed to make a large opening and the upper part was reinforced with the light weight steel beam. The inner area is one large space but has different levels creating two rooms.

The service court was moved to te opening space facing the deck in the south side. In addition, the open air spa made with bluestone is built in next to the deck. The fantastic view can be seen from seven meters from opening.

How do the clients have rich time on weekend...
