Symbiotic House is a minimal residence located in Nagano, Japan, designed by R.E.A.D. & Architects. The project is a villa project for a couple who finished their work to restart a new life in the area of Minami-Karuizawa. The planned site is on a corner surrounded by fir trees with a view of Mt. Asama. The architects wanted to make use of the surrounding environment and the long site unique to Karuizawa. The facade has a sloping concrete roof that coalesces with the surrounding mountains.
