Contemporary Home Amid the Trees – The Ring House

When your house is in such a spectacular setting, a 360-degree view is not just an extra – it’s a necessity. Located just outside of Tokyo, Japan, the Ring House by Takei-Nabeshima Architects is designed as a serene retreat that melds the modern and natural environments within its wooded landscape. The aptly named Ring House is encircled with rings of glass and wood that allow for views through the trees from the impeccably appointed interior. While the rings create visual interest in this contemporary design, they also do double duty as privacy barriers nestled between the large expanses of glass. The natural elements of the exterior make their way indoors by way of the natural wood floors and accents throughout, adding warmth to the otherwise simple, almost stark spaces.
