Green Shadow House, a Diverse Approach to Architecture

Green Shadow House, a Diverse Approach to Architecture

Green Shadow House comes from Mutsue Hayakusa and has a very interesting design concept behind. The home was constructed on a slope and the uneven terrain seems to emphasize its originality. Surrounded by a beautiful pristine environment in Karuizawa,Nagano, the exterior of the residence harmonizes well with the landscape and it almost feels like it is camouflaged. Rectangles and parallelepipeds of different sizes are the basis for the design of this L-shaped building. Even though no geometrical shape is identical, the overall impression that this house inspires is that of unity. Indoors, the effect of these shapes is even more spectacular, as windows of different sizes turn this place into a bright crib, where natural light is welcomed and treated with the consideration it deserves. The interiors are otherwise minimalist, in tune with the simplicity and beauty of the home’s location.

    I agree emma-kate. Kind of a ghost house.
