I-house by Masahiko Sato

Beautiful project by Masahiko Sato, from Architect Show, a studio based in Japan.

“Japanese architect Masahiko Sato has perched the ‘I-house’ on sloping terrain above Sasebo Bay in Nagasaki, Japan, framing horizon views of the sea. Oriented towards the south, the dwelling was placed upon the land without altering the steep ground, harmonizing with the landscape and minimizing construction impacts to the site.

Accessed by a winding mountain road, the rear of the residence introduces inhabitants into the first floor, with the ground level terraced into the property and second and third storey overhead. Branching from the main volume, an open-air canopy forms a carport for vehicles with an unobstructed view.”
