The site of the Mebius house is located ten minutes away from Kamakura. To the West it is surrounded by a mountain range. To the South and East are an Urbanization Control Area. This restricts all future building in those areas. Thus the promise of unspoiled surrounding greenery made for a highly appealing site.

Though the rough terrain did pose some problems. The mountains to the south restricted the amount of sunlight that could penetrate the house in winter. Uneven land posed challenges to how construction could be carried out. Atelier Tekuto based their design on various rhythms and wavelengths, such as those of the sun, lunar cycles, plant life and human cycles.

The building’s space is a fusion of interior and exterior layers. The plans specifically called for a corridor that formed a quadrangle, accompanied by other spaces of complementary volumes.  Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaThere was also the need to minimize the amount of excavation due to the uneven flag-like shape of the site. Atelier Tekuto did not try to fight the natural conditions of the environment, but used the uneven land to Atelier Tekuto’s advantage and established multiple levels. Thus the building grew as a space full of architectural rhythm, bearing not just a plain facade, but an eye-catching sense of verticality.Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaProject gallerySee allShow lessHotel + Spa in Gdynia / Igor BrożynaArticlesTrimo Urban Crash 2011: Opening of the Winning Life StandArticles Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: Atelier Tekuto Photographs Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Toshihiro Sobajima+ 23 Share CopyAbout this officeAtelier TekutoOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKamakura-shiWoodHousesJapanPublished on July 17, 2011Cite: “Mebius / Atelier Tekuto” 17 Jul 2011.
