The House in Nara is One with the Surroundings

The House in Nara by Uemachi Laboratory is meant to blend in well with the surrounding nature, as even the materials used for the abode are quite organic.

Wood is a major material used for the house, and the interior opens up onto a garden out the back allowing the residences to relax and enjoy the outdoors. In fact, the garden actually wraps around the building, giving the home an even more natural look. The goal of this house was for it to have an intimate relationship with the bordering area, which is exactly what was achieved. The house is not overpowering like some places that are unnecessarily large and grandiose. This structure is subtle and fits in perfectly with the surrounding area, which is exactly what the owners were looking for.
