K5 house

The 'K5-House' by Japanese architect Masahiko Sato of Architect Show is immersed in the slow life of the nature-filled city of Kurume, Japan.

The family areas, in this case the living, dining and kitchen open to the landscape with a wall of glass doors and a stepped deck, bringing the outdoors into everyday activity. Spreading across a rural site, the home has spatial variations which are not possible within the dense urban centers, including a hidden earthen floor within a small open-air, sheltered corridor which has been hollowed from a double-storey mass adjacent to the japanese-style room.
