A Peaceful Japanese House Surrounded By Greenery [Video]

Abundant greenery surrounds this peaceful Japanese house in Hiroshima city, created by Hayato Komatsu Architects. The house belongs to its designer, who embraced the irregularities of the site, which is made shady by a large tunnel and retaining wall that penetrates Mt. Eba. At first glance, the site and surrounding area appeared undesirable. However, the dense greenery that overspills from the landscape takes away the typical urban atmosphere. Instead, the obscure location created an opportunity for a home design that connects the lush environment with modern architecture. Living spaces have been raised 4m above ground level to take in the view, where a complementary relationship between the new garden and surrounding specimens mesh as one spectacular scene.
