Nojiri-ko, being close to nature

For this lake house in Japan, the Sugawaradaisuke studio in Tokyo used five linked levels. The platforms change the point of view of the house both inside and outside. In fact, rather than a traditional two-story structure, the studio designed a layered layout for the cottage, which offers occupants multiple views of the surrounding forest.

The house, called Nojiri-ko Nature Platforms, is located near the shore of Lake Noriji in the Kiso mountains of the Japanese prefecture of Nagano. Each of the five platforms is made of different materials in different sizes and is set at different heights.

At ground level there is the first platform which translates into a semi-covered space that can be used for storing firewood and as a winter garden. The sliding glass doors open onto the second platform, which takes the form of a raised wooden patio positioned under the roof of the upper floors.

The third level of the house is completely covered and covers the entire width of the property. Here occupants can use the kitchen or sit at the table, which also serves as the floor of the fourth platform. At the fourth level, the floor extends the entire length of the house to accommodate a living area with a bench set in a central wall and a small fireplace.

The master bedroom is located on this level while on another flight of stairs, a fifth deck can be used as an additional sleeping area. Full-height windows wrap around two sides of the house, offering truly magnificent panoramic views.
