Mountain-Mimicking Abodes
The Villa SSK by Takeshi Hirobe Architects is Inspired by Nature

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Nov 29, 12

The Villa SSK may not be as mountainous as the mountain range behind it, but it does capture a semblance of landscape’s majestic nature. The geometric lines mimic the peaks to complement the house’s natural surroundings. In fact, the use of floor-to-ceiling windows at the front of the Villa SSK also helps to mirror the view of Tokyo Bay.

Designed by Takeshi Hirobe Architects, it is clear that the Villa SSK has a great focus on nature. Nevertheless, the overall aesthetic is very contemporary. Located in Chiba, Japan, the Villa SSK provides a connection between the mountains and the waters while also providing the inhabitants with modern facilities to live in luxury. From cathedral ceilings to airy open spaces, it is a stunning work of architecture.
