House in Tamagawa
Residence along a tranquil riverside, built in a newly subdivided lot.
Design grounded and guided by the presence
of existing trees and views of mountains in the distance.
An approach of harmonious submission to the potential inherent
in the surrounding environment and the land, forcing nothing.
To recognize the best of what a location has to offer
and engage in design for it with a spirit of grateful acceptance,
taking care to respect the fragility of such blessings—
this is the essence of our philosophy of design work.
