I think I may have just found my dream cabin. In the mountainous region of Uenohara, not too far from Mt. Fuji, rests the newly constructed sora ni tatsu ie, or “Skyward House.” It’s built on the slope of a green hillside and the exterior is entirely paneled with red cedar.
The “final resting place,” as Kazuhiko Kishimoto refers to the home for one, is divided into an indoor and outdoor space. The interior rooms are completely white while the outdoor space maintains a consistency with the exterior of the building. I love the contrast between the two spaces and how they both compliment, in their own different way, the mountainous backdrop. What a perfect place to ease into a weekend. (Happy Friday!)
