Architects Keiji Ashizawa said: “The clients wanted to insure that they could enjoy the large landscape, as well as the art and furnishings that they have collected. We extensively discussed both their lifestyle and a setting for their furnishings – and how to mold materials, light, air and space to fit this broader goal. All the materials including the lighting and space are in constructed within the house to work with the art and furniture”. Images courtesy of Daici Ano.
