From the architect. This residence is located in villa subdivision in Shiga, Japan.There are rich natural environments with Lake Biwa in thesoutheast and Mount Hira in the northwest. Therefore in the first stage, we have decided to use cedar panels as exterior material. The exterior wall is colored with three colors and attached gradation patterns, so the abstract wood texture comes and gives us a massive impression.

As Forest side, we have arranged a semi-outdoor terrace inside,so that there could be a coherent exterior space. Also in the living room, we observed the sky and forests around it and we have made graceful sunlights come in various directions through the windows.

They might want to rethink the name of their firm; the #architecture is fine though. http://archdai.ly/fPvVxK
