Cell Space Architects

Horizon House

Weekend house located in Karuizawa.
The entire building is made from a combination of horizontal and vertical concrete surfaces to match the vertically rising larch forest. The four boxes comprising the main structure are arranged like an echelon of a flight of geese.
The site is elongated and the garage is at the far end of a passageway where a deluxe car is kept.
A high living room ceiling gives volume to the group room.
