Situated in the quite area of Yotei no Sato, near Hirafu, this family home’s design is based on simple principles that allowed for a cost effective property: flat land, rectangular floor plans, two-story building, single slope roof, ideally oriented and fancy features where its counts.
From the living/ dining area, large windows and wide covered terrace provide stunning and unobstructed views of Mt Yotei similar to those from the master bedroom and its tiled bathroom.
The exterior walls, covered with a mix of natural cedar cladding and grey galvanized steel cladding creates the cool and modern Japanese architecture.
The high ceiling on the 2nd floor provides a spacious master bedroom, and highly comfortable living and dining experiences, which are accentuated by the symmetrical, tile covered fireplace wall at the end of the living room.
The house, designed with maximized functionality, with a garage, a large dry room/ laundry, living areas upstairs and downstairs, 4 bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms, is the ideal rental property for large groups and families.
Yanagi means “willow” in Japanese and reflects the intent of blending the property within the surrounding trees.
“Franck played an important role in the delivery of our house. He was efficient, responsive and professional in his approach and attitude. His familiarity with the local project delivery process and his proficiency with the local language made for a smooth and efficient construction process. The house ultimately was delivered on time and on budget.”
“Franck was also subsequently extremely diligent in following up to ensure that any defects were duly rectified and addressed by the contractor.”
