Atelier BNK, a Hokkaido-based architectural firm celebrating its 40th year of business, recently completed Jorg House, a residential unit located in the northern snow country. The L-shaped home is built 5 stories high to allow maximum sunlight (when there is any) to enter. The roof, entryway and lookout are also designed to accommodate heavy snowfall.
