Behind the house on the north is a hill clad with wild bamboos. Sandwiched in between the richness of the sea and that of the hill, the design was to open the house as much as was possible to the natural outdoors and to become a part of it.

The first floor is sleeping quarters, and the second, uppermost level, is living, dining, and kitchen. The second floor is basically one large room zoned functionally and separately by the structural grids.

The bedrooms floor is carpeting to allow softer material for the legs. The exterior is stucco clad over exterior insulation to prevent interior condensation and subsequent mold.

On sunny, non-cloudy days, one may be able to view Mt. Fuji in the southwest in all its glory.Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NukamuraProject gallerySee allShow less’BubbleDeck’ Technology at Harvey Mudd College / MATT ConstructionArticlesAD Round Up: Housing Part IXArticles Share CopyHouses• ArchDaily House Overlooking The Sea / Edward Suzuki Associates Architects: Edward Suzuki Associates Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Yasuhiro Nukamura+ 34 Share 2011 “COPY” Year: House Overlooking The Sea / Edward Suzuki AssociatesSave this projectSaveHouse Overlooking The Sea / Edward Suzuki Associates Area: 540 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Photographs Projects “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/229858/house-overlooking-the-sea-edward-suzuki-associates Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/229858/house-overlooking-the-sea-edward-suzuki-associates Clipboard CopyAbout this officeEdward Suzuki AssociatesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesPublished on April 27, 2012Cite: “House Overlooking The Sea / Edward Suzuki Associates” 27 Apr 2012.
