Featured Project: Telescopic Home By mA-style
February 14, 2013
Project: SCOPE House
Architect: mA-style architecture
Location: Shizuoka, Japan
Like a large cubic telescope lens, a white cantilevered volume jets out from the base of this new home in the hilly landscape of southern Japan, framing views of the surrounding tea plantations and neighborhood. The cantilever is perched above the ground on two geometric bases, giving the home a feeling of lightness and purity. With the large panoramic window, daylight illuminates the interior spaces, which consist of a typical Japanese living room on the first level and two bedrooms upstairs.
