‘YEZO’ Is A Luxury Retreat Nestled Atop Japan’s Hokkaido Mountain Range

Despite only spanning less than146,000 square miles, the Island of Japan is home to a surprisingly diverse array of landscapes and typography, containing everything from picturesque beaches to rocky mountain ranges to wide-open valleys. And it’s the beauty Japan’s natural scenery has to offer that ultimately inspired the latest conceptual work from designers, Kristof Crolla and Julien Klisz.

Dubbed the “YEZO,” this mountainous modern cabin retreat is perched high atop a hill on the island’s northern mountain range of Hokkaido. The structure is pieced together around a main central concrete chimney which acts as an anchor point for the building’s series of glue-laminated timber beams that comprise the building’s sloping roof. What’s more, the chimney is flanked by a spiral staircase leading up to an observation deck that overlooks the local landscape while the front of the building is capped off with a patio with a sunken hot tub, and a modern take on traditional Japanese temple stairs. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide additional views of the mountainous region. To learn more about the project you can check out the link below.
