C by the Sea: House C by Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP Architects Co.
Text: Detail Daily
Continuing the series looking at Japanese houses of the last few years, I was reminded of Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP Architects' House C. This simple seaside house, is gentle and delicate. It is constructed of what appears to be rammed earth and manages to capture the spirit of the site, down to the gentle breeze that wafts its grassy roof.
Visit the architect's website and there is a series of photographs that depicts the building emerging from the very ground on which it stands. Some of those images are reproduced here. The whole proposition is an antidote to city living.
