Located in the forest of Suwa in Nagano Prefecture at the foot of the Yatsugatake mountains, surrounded by the dense Japanese white birches, the Division House is a weekend house for a couple from Tokyo.
All made of wood, the building contains a large cube and a small adjoining cube annex. From above, the asymmetrical pitched roof of house looks like an enormous arrow, adjacent to a quiet pond.
Inspiration from architect:
You experience a total immersion in the forest when you are inside the house. Rather than a building that simply pushes the forest away, Division House creates spaces in-between the trees.
