This is Saruta’s family house, facing the ridgelines of the beautiful mountains and Matsumoto Castle and Matsumotodaira below the site. We believe that the most important thing in this kind of location house is how to frame the beauty and change of nature such as sky color, flow of clouds and expression of mountains, so that we find forever full of fresh discoveries. The random opening which seems to be opened freely at first sight is window which is actually arranged with various sizes, depths, finishes, shapes and heights to be able to enjoy various sequences when walking and sitting. Barnacle shape of bay window is a device to makes the appearance impressive as well as raise shadow volume inside. The road side was closed to secure privacy, but on the other hand, the landscape side is completely opened like single side lighting house. In addition, we set up a music building for pianists as well in the same site. We design beautiful wood structure beam with the idea of Kaburatsuka like traditional Matsumoto house but arrange to modern and minimal. We believe that we were able to have a free-firing and bold internal composition.
