japanese firm edward suzuki architects has completed ‘villa by the sea’, a vacation home located an hour from downtown tokyo.
located in the sea resort of hayama in the shonan region, the the south façade of the house faces the sea. in order to capture
the panorama and integrate it into the interior spaces, the front of the house is comprised mostly of glass. at the back,
the structure is integrated into a hill of wild bamboo, as both natural environments are incorporated into the space.
the plan is based on a six meter by six meter concrete grid for the three stories. the underground level severs as the entrance,
storage and garage, while the first floor is the sleeping quarters. the uppermost floor is the living, dining and kitchen areas,
neither of which is divided from the other, leaving an open concept space separated only by its function
