Japanese Mountain House – unusual mountain house plans with open concept

Japanese architecture firm Suppose Design Office designed this mountain house in the Otake, Japan. With a view to die for and a contemporary design to kill for, this Japanese house has it all. With the mountain range to the south and the sea to the north, lots of windows were a must to maximize the site’s best features. Between the two, this ultra-modern house stands in stark contrast to nature. The mountain side of the house was designed to by “as close as possible to being outside,” according to the architects. To achieve this, the architects removed certain structural elements, resulting in an open concept house with interiors that open onto a spectacular outdoor terrace, and the breathtaking view. To compensate, the south side of the house became a vital load-bearing component in its construction. The whole shebang is clad in a futuristic, glossy, waterproof material – a method borrowed from the ancient art of boat building. According to Suppose Design Office, “By rethinking standard practices and personal opinions about structure, utility, form, materials, interiors and exteriors, we think we can find new possibilities for materials, the relationship of form and space, and the building and its surroundings, in a planning environment that opens up new wonders not found in traditional buildings.” Suppose Design Office
