From the architect. Located in Kamifurano, Hokkaido, this lot is occupied by Farm Tomita, a famous sightseeing spot. Without any landmark at the entrance to the farm, the large line of people, cars, and buses caused a certain amount of confusion. Thus, there was a need for a signal or gate at the main entrance. I began by researching a variety of thing like the state of the line and the existing facilities.

The results and the issue of visibility prompted me to create a volume using various sizes of house forms. Although they had a special application as a signal, by erecting the forms there, I attempted to create a new comfortable place that would serve as a trigger on the site.

Are the timber arches not a bit disconcerting? From the photos, it is possible to see the enormous timber beams holding it up from behind.

In my opinion, the project would be better built from masonry or adapted to exploit the tensile properties of timber. Built from brick, the project would make more sense as a type of round tower with beautifully constructed arches at the bottom connecting to the foundations...perhaps this is a completely different project though.

The arch gives pleasant shade and is not too difficult to build.
Still I think what you said had to be said by somebody.
The "houses" do their job.
