House by a Quiet River Deep in the Mountain with Cool Floor Plan

This house by a quiet river, deep in the mountains is designed to be connected to this landscape. It is divided into two wings, with the hole-shaped terrace in between serving to connect the wood in the back of the house with the woods on the opposite bank. There are many artificial pools that are filled with lotus right by the house. Walls are created to be light enough that the wind would sweep through but from stone. The combination of such walls, large glazing, water and lotuses make almost every place in the house calm, relaxing and connected as to the nature as to the contemporary lifestyle. [Kengu Kuma]
