In Japan, experts from the architectural studio of Shigeru Ban Architects has designed an exemplary and unique architectural state of the art that is a crescent house built in terrain site in Japan which resembles a crescent moon in the section. For building a house, the terrain site becomes a platform situated on a green slope in the northern part of south Hakone. Here, the weather is peaceful and you can see the Mount Fuji from the straight sight.
The architecture of the house is defined as “Polumesyachnaya” due to the desire of customers to open up the picturesque forms of the natural environment and can hide from the view from neighboring houses located nearby to have a delightful experience for the people living in such a magnificent house.
The orientation of the house decides the optimal use of natural day light but at the same time can save the inhabitants of such unusual homes from the sun when it’s too bright. The house comprises a living room, kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms and amenities.
The zoned open extended partition space acts as furniture which in turn hides the technical units and components. In the center of the “crescent” structure has a huge span of a cantilever roof. Section of this field is the deepest to its effective use as a residential area.
However, the column was nevertheless a necessary element of providing support for the roof. Architects have found an excellent functional and visual solution to this problem – use fire tube located in the center of an open living room.
Thus, the total sculpture of such a crescent house is splendid and excellent making the inhabitants enjoy the natural environment to the core.
