Cliff House Weekend Residence by Masato Sekiya
Cliff House Weekend Residence
Cliff House Weekend Residence
This is a fishing cabin with a mountain view, on the bank of Heaven River (‘Tenkawa’ in Japanese). Made of reinforced concrete, the shape is a simple tube, six meters long. The roadside end of the tube is counterweighted and anchored deep in the ground, so that it extends horizontally from the bank and hangs out over the water. The design is simple, the interior is spacious, and the riverside deck is open to the sky, the mountains and the river. Built below the road level, only the roof of the cabin is visible, from the roadside, so the construction does not block the view.

Monopitched Roof Residence
This design adapts traditional architectural elements into a modern three-generational home, enclosing a central garden and creating an indoor-outdoor space through the use of fully opening glass doors, and giving a dynamic view from the living area, over the garden. The upper floor on the east side is for the second and third generation, and is designed to ensure privacy. The mono-pitched roofs are the standout feature of the design, and have glass panels between the girders to let in natural light from the north, while the south is shaded from strong summer sun.

This location is very hot and humid in the summer. It was necessary to prevent the large roof from being heated by sunlight and making the entire house too hot. Therefore, a rainwater cooling system was adopted to take advantage of the wide roof. It is collected in a central atrium and pumped back up to the roof, where it is expected to cool the house through evaporation. In the winter the excess water is reused for toilets and other purposes, which is also environmentally friendly. The roof deck, with its characteristic curve, also provides a playground for children, even on a site with limit
