House in Ofuna is an unconventional Japanese home envisioned by LEVEL Architects and located in Kamakura City. Its volumetric architecture approach is highly original and features elements with a twist: “The cutaway corner is able to establish a direct view onto the small hills west of the house, as well as retaining privacy from the street below. The use of natural wood material for the extruded volume itself allowed the design to incorporate a hard edge at the cutaway corner, creating a sharp and distinct separation from the rest of the design“, explained the architects.
All interiors encircle a terrace, home to a lovely tree. The first level accommodates the bedrooms, while the second hosts a living/dining/kitchen space with a ceiling height of more than 3.5 meters. This particular area of the house is filled with natural light all day long and allows the family to interact in a healthy, playful environment.
