L House by Florian Busch Architects

Florian Busch Architects takes the outdated bi-level home to a new level in the design of L House, a cozy holiday home in Hirafu. Because of L House’s location on a slope, the two floors of the house experience both a translation and rotation in plan. This new spatial relationship allows the stairs of the house to mimic the climb up Mount Yotei and for the upper volume to open up to the rooftop of the lower, which contains a terrace an open-air bath. The ashen timber of the house’s interiors complements the snowy landscape of Niseko, Hokkaido, and gives the getaway home an appropriate feel of rejuvenation and escape.
