This single family villa, located on a hill with fantastic view over the Seto Inland Sea, the water body which devides two of the major Japanese islands, was realised by the Hiroshima based practice Kazunori Fujimoto Architect & Associates. In order to achieve a wide spread of space the roof is a shell construction, a reinforced slab of only 120 mm.

“Usually, the big beam or column of concrete frame are needed to against for the thrust of the shell.
But in this house, light construction and simple space is realized by arranging a steal frame with the reinforced concrete.

It’s free from arbitrary decision and consists of simple construction, 
but at the same time, there are rich sequence of the space and comfortable relationship between the surroundings.”
