Home to many landmarks in Japanese culture – which includes a 7th century Buddhist temple – Nagano is a relatively well-sized area in the central part of Honshu. After being commissioned for a residential project near the city, Kidosaki Architects Studio decided to honor Nagano’s majestic natural beauty. The House in Yatsugatake is nestled on a steep slope at the foot of the Yatsugatake Mountains, a minimalist and expansive structure. Two diagonal bracing steel cylinders support the hanging living room, giving a dramatic floating effect that celebrates the vast surrounding area. The use of wood, unpainted concrete and marble in the space only serve to reinforce the flow of the home. Enjoy a look through the house above, then head over to Kidosaki Architects Studio’s website to learn more about the firm.
