Aptly titled Path, a mountainous home rises up in a central Tokyo neighborhood. Designed by ARTechnic Architects and created for a couple and their 3 kids, the U-shaped structure consists of multi-levels that are connected by stairs that wind through the space like a mountain trail.
With minimal partitions, the interior space is essentially a single, continuous space that wraps around, eventually ascending to the summit, or roof terrace. Planters strategically placed throughout the exterior add to the mountainous feel while also adding some privacy. You can read more about the home on Architectural Record.
