Small House - Country
An anthology of small country houses, many in Japan but also including examples from the Netherlands, Ireland, Norway, Ecuador, Mexico, Chile, and elsewhere around the world, that creates a portrait of how architects harmonise the human scale with the environmental scale. Each demonstrates interesting material and contextual solutions based on the site and the client’s wishes, as well as with respect to the natural surroundings. Forests, rocky coastlines, sloping topography, and suburban country estates are just some of the locations where these houses (ranging from 94 to 252 square metres) are found. With work by Kenta Eto Architects, Takeru Shoji, YH2, and more.
