Karuizawa Villa

Address: Karuizawa, Nagano, Japan
Completion: 2009
Type: Weekend House
Project Description: 2-storey weekend house in a resort area of Japan surrounded by beautiful trees.

Concept was to maximise views to the trees and to have open and spaceous feel whilst providing a space like hammock.

Natural materials such as timber and limestones were used to clad the outside and inside to be consistent with the environment.
