The Orchards land development is a chalet community situated in the farmland area of Kabayama, only 6 minutes away from Hirafu. The flat land provides each property unobstructed views of Mt Yotei on one side and of Grand Hirafu ski hills on the other side.
All homes in this development are designed with a North American chalet architectural style with cross gable roofs, natural cedar cladding and cultured stone exterior walls, as well as fully glazed V-shape bays on each side of the homes.
Situated at the entry of the community, this building, which includes a show room, event space and gym, sets the architectural tone of the development while being discreet with its single story horizontal lines.
This humble building was the first that Franck Giral designed that got built.
