Creatively Adapted to A Moderate Climate: Yatsugatake Villa in Japan

This countryside retreat envisioned by practice MDS impresses due to its original shape and interior design. Located in the foothills of the Yatsugatake mountains, in a climate that is not too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter, the residence reflects a serene life, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. According to Designboom, the project was developed by using three adjacent volumes of different heights, with overhangs for controlling natural light and heat intensity.

Wood is the defining element for the interiors, visible in the exposed beams, floors and window frames. Cross-ventilation is ensured through strategically placed windows. Two narrow terraces sheltered beneath the roof overhangs contribute to the building’s originality. “The fan-shaped design – opening to the south – means plenty of sun streams in during the cold winters: no matter the time of day there’s always a place to bask in the sun”, explained architects Kiyotoshi Mori and Natsuko Kawamura.
