The intricate MS House by  Yo Yamagata Architects is located in Mishima, Shizuoka, Japan, on a slope overlooking Mount Fuji. Its unusual character derives from the challenges imposed by the terrain, with only 30% of flat surface out of a total of  250 square meters available as living space. Moreover, the client disliked the idea of having a tall house, which dictated a low volume, mostly developed horizontally.

Each viewing point reveals a different geometry; the building as a whole almost seems to disobey the laws of gravitation: “At first we dug soil to the halfway of the slope; this was for the basement floor which is constructed with concrete. The wooden floor is supported by the basement floor“, the architects explained. The project’;s minimalist interiors are surprisingly warm, due to the abundance of wooden elements. Isn’;t it inspiring to observe how the complexity of this family home goes beyond its construction challenges? [Photography: Forward Stroke / Koji Okumura]
