Glass House by Hikohito Konishi
April 30, 2010 - Hokkaido
This custom-built snow house, designed by Japanese architect Hikohito Konishi, employs glass, concrete and steel and sits perched atop a steep woodland escarpment, ensuring year round views of breathtaking Hokkaido landscape and Mt Youtei.
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home features expanses of sliding glass on the south side of the property.
It includes upper living and entertainment areas flooded with natural light that fuse ‘Australian BBQ lifestyle' outside with Japanese design inside.
The home also includes a ski room, garage and gym for a total living area of 270-sq m.
