White Skip by Yamauchi Architect and Associates

White Skip is a minimalist house located in Hokkaido, Japan, designed by Yamauchi Architect and Associates.  This house is situated in the midway on a sloping road, at a 20 minutes driving distance from the city center of Sapporo. The site exists in a low-density residential district where natural environments still remain to some extent and new and old houses co-exist. The non-reclaimed land is drastically inclined with two meter gap, which would be equivalent to 2/3 of the floor height. The architects decided to incorporate the level-difference into the architecture as gaps and in-between spaces.
