Constructed in the Okayama Prefecture near Seto Inland Sea in Japan is the new Pit House from UID Architects and designer Keisuke Maeda. Built on a terraced mountain hill for a married couple and their small child, the structure offers northwardly views of the surrounding landscape and features an interior design meant to serve as an extension of the natural environment outside. Undivided from the land with its pit-like structure, the home offers six concrete floor levels and sees a cylindrical concrete core alongside branch-like support columns extending to various floating boxes – thus creating a series of single-room locations in an otherwise undefined space.
