‘Shell’ House by ARTechnic,Karuizawa, Japan.


The Japanse architects ARTechnic  have completed ‘Shell’, a wonderful holiday villa in Karuizawa, Japan.

The two-storey concrete building consists of two tubes that are arranged around a fir tree. The floor is raised 1.4 metres from the ground;  the architects intended to minimise time spent on maintaining the property by separating the house from its natural surroundings.

“Being in sync with nature isn’t about yielding to nature – it’s about coexistence,” explains Kotaro Ide of ARTechnic. “The existence of the structure depends on its power to endure nature.”
