Maruyama House by Atelier Sano
I’m kind of in love with this house by Takahiko Sano of Atelier Sano. I love the cubic structure, the large windows and how it takes in both the cityscape and the mountainous greenery of its surroundings. As it turns out, the location – the foot of a mountain – was just perfect for creating an ambiguous buffer between the outdoors and indoors.
Completed back in May, Enyama House is the architect’s latest work. Photos were just recently released.
I’ve been seeing a lot of awesome architecture coming out of Hokkaido recently and it’s making me want to move there!
