This house is located in Kure, a village in Japan where old houses are irregularly built on a hill. The place offers a fascinating view. The historical residences along the slope look neat and organized. When Architect Daisaku Hanamoto designed it, he made sure to match with the surrounding environment.
The site’s shape was irregular, featuring some steps. Therefore, the Japanese architect divided the house into three volumes so they could fit in the site’s shape without being bigger than the other houses. The characteristic roof blends well with the roof gradient of the neighbor houses, and also harmonizes with the rigid line of the mountains.
