Lakeside House in Nojiri, Japan

May 8, 2018

Category: Living

Lake Nojiri is an ancient glacial lake. Verdant forestry and distant mountains form the fringe of the beautiful, primeval waterfront, where once was discovered the massive tusk of an extinct species of wooly mammoth. The Lakeside House by Sugawaradaisuke architects provides the perfect anchorage to relax, and take in the prehistoric majesty of Nojiri with modern comforts.

Designed with the coalescence of human being and nature in mind, the house is built of five distinct layers, each with a different outlook, thermal condition, and spatiality. Large window panes welcome the light through the trees, as well as permitting a view of the distant lake, which, depending on what time of year you opt to visit, could either be half frozen, or reflecting the dazzling plumes of fireworks, set off for the Lake Nojiri hanabi festival, held every July. Sugawaradaisuke made use of “Horizontal Building Elements” to suggest a diversity of activities, and to reflect the different seasonal changes that tether man and nature together.
