If you can’t find a high point on a mountain to build a house with a spectacular view, follow the steps of Tato Architects and construct a house like the ‘House in Rokko.’

Located on Mt. Rokko in Kobe, Japan, the House in Rokko is a raised home with clever architectural techniques to get breathtaking views. It’s a minimal house that serves residents more functional benefit as well as aesthetic thrill. The house sits on a steep slope, which makes it impossible to build with large machines.

The lower level of the house is surrounded by glass windows. The glass partition provides residents with 360-degree views and sunlight; it acts as a greeting room, computer and play area. The upper level is completely private and is surrounded with metal panels. A balcony that wraps around the front of the home offers an unobstructed view of the mountainous exterior.
