Name: Villa in Kaikoh
Designer: Satoshi Okada Architects
Location: Shizuoka, Japan
Villa in Kaikoh is a minimal home located in Shizuoka, Japan, designed by Satoshi Okada Architects. The structure, which sits atop a 643 sqm plot, is composed of reinforced concrete and steel. The site is located in a steep cliff overlooking a major public road and a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean.
When I came across this design, I almost fell out of my seat by its sheer beauty. I love how this architecture could be both angular and chaotic, yet composed and minimal at the same time. Maybe it’s a reflection of our lives?
