Sunken Contemporary Cabins
House in Hidaka has an Amicable Rapport with Agricultural Landscape

Whether or not any thought has been put in, a structure has a relationship with its surroundings, and the House in Hidaka offers an example of a building that has a good relationship with the landscape around it.

The project was executed by the Suppose Design Office for clients who wish to feel as though their home would create a strong connection with the earth. The solution was to sink the two-storey dwelling half a floor below the surface of the soil and introduce open fenestration just above.

The result is a space that emphasizes horizontality and allows the inhabitants to look out of the windows with the fields at eye level. For improved privacy in the bedrooms, the top floor of the House in Hidaka, Japan, conceals much more behind cladding than the lower level divulges.
