yard house by TNA Architects

Niwa no ie (yard house) is the latest brainchild of architects Makoto Takei and Chie Nabeshima of TNA (who I featured in my series on Japanese architects). It’s a weekend getaway home that was constructed onto the side of a mountain in Nagano prefecture. Personally, I don’t think I would sleep very well in this house. But I do like how you enter through that trap door on the floor.
Photos are, as usual, by architectural photographer Daici Ano.

  1. interesting structure!
    i often visit nagano and have seen some beautiful home in and around karuizawa.
    i wonder how warm this home is in winter with all those windows…

  3. Unique structure, i love the idea of the trees surrounding the structure, gives it a “tree-house” feel.
