Located among the kaki (persimmon) trees, this beautiful house is a project by Japanese architecture studio Airhouse Design Office. To meet the client’s brief for a home with large open spaces and high ceilings, the architects designed a large roof that sits on top of seven substantial columns. The private areas are located inside those columns, while the common spaces are arranged in the centre of the house, creating a large free flowing living area. Floor-to-ceiling glazing features on three of the four elevations. A large sheltered terrace at the front of the building offers a transitional space linking the inside and the outside.

The only things visible from within the house are the orchard and the sky, which provides a certain sense of openness while privacy is ensured by the fruit trees. As the landscape transforms with the changing of the seasons, an atmospheric living space is produced in the house nestled among the trees.
