Visually Floating House In Yatsugatake, Japan

Designed by Kidosaki Architects Studio, this beautiful home is partially extended off the ground and seems to "float" over the mountain ridge.

This 303 square foot-big house has a very simple look, but that works in its favor. At first glance, it reminds of a flat rectangle with a roof and a couple of windows. However, if you take a closer look, you will notice that the house is in practice a multi-layered building covered in wooden panes. Windows are actually very large glass panes that allow the sun fill the inside with natural light. The panes are accompanied by wide and comfortable terraces that surround the main envelope of the house.

The part of the house that stretches out over the mountain slope is supported by a massive column and two metal ribs. This creative architecture solution generates an impression of the building "floating" over the ground and intensifies the joy coming from contemplating the scenery. There is something majestic about it, some sort of natural grace that translates into uniqueness of the concept.

Simplicity of the outside is mirrored by the inside. Designers went for modern and elegant furniture, which harmonizes with ceramic or wooden flooring. Particularly noticeable are the walls - while in some rooms they are painted white, in others they sport an interesting black stone finish. The number of home appliances and other accessories is very low and they are completely unobtrusive. As a result, not a single element of the interior stands in the way of admiring the mountainous landscape behind the window.
