Circular Pit House With A Sunken Footprint

Japanese architecture often impresses, and this time also. UID Architects built Pit House in the Okayama prefecture for a single family of three. The primary structure consists of concentric concrete inhabitable cylinders in a sunken circular footprint; inside there are many separate levels containing small gardens and several elements. The amazing feature of the house is structural plywood panels of reddish color and cherry floorboards. The entire house reminds of a giant oasis, place for rest in a big city. The whole atmosphere makes you relax and feel close to nature due to many gardens and big windows that bring in light.
