The plan of the structure has a very open and airy feel to it with plenty of glass being used in an exaggerated fashion to ensure that there is a natural and flowing connectivity between every room and with the exterior as well. This also gives the JPGN Residence ample natural ventilation along with a feeling of freshness.
The structure has been designed to naturally blend in with the ambient surroundings and offer those inside a constant visual connectivity with the lovely outdoors. The one large and flowing design of the interior showcases the ample space on offer while the rising and falling roof helps in demarcating space internally. The use of various natural tones of wood clad in Hoop Pine poplar and maple finishes that accentuate the beauty of the home.
The lower floor contains the kids’ bedrooms the guestrooms and other facilities like the gymnasium and the home theater which are beautifully integrated with the rest of the house. The central attraction of the residence though is the serene and minimalist pond of Buddhist inspiration that should put any worries to rest.
Each of the rooms flows into another giving one a sense of freedom while the use of lovely shades of wood and ambient lighting makes them warm and inviting. The décor and furnishings are sleek and modern while a refreshing pool offers you a chance to cool down in the evening.
Designed by Kidosaki Architects Studio it is not just the external dome of the residence but also every single element present on the inside that use the Mt.Asama backdrop and play off of it. While the home itself is not physically associated with the mountain the visual presence makes it the most important part of this cool Japanese house- Just the way its owners wanted it to be!
