Japanese architecture practice Architects Su Fujimoto Unveiled design villa hotel featuring an undulating green roof offering stunning views of Japan’Ishigaki Island.
Designed for a Japanese hospitality brand Not a hotelThe brand’s new vacation homes will be built to offer multiple rentable vacation homes in multiple locations across Japan.
Fujimoto Holiday Home is located on the peaceful island of Ishigaki, an 11-minute drive from New Ishigaki Airport. The holiday home, which is gently connected to the land, is offered to visitors who want to spend a quiet time on the island.
Architects Su FujimotoThe design, made with a circular-shaped structure and a bowl-shaped mountain patio, envisions like a “little paradise, offering a suggestive experience of the earth”.
“A unique tropical resort”
As the Not A Hotel website explains, the design is described as “a unique, ever-migrating tropical resort” and can accommodate up to 10 people. “Even a large number of people can have a relaxing time while switching on and off,” the project’s website states.
The design features a green-covered undulating roof and includes large openings where it partially suggests a terrace and a small pond that users can roam around the pond and on the rooftop.
“From here, you can’t see any of the surrounding buildings, and the opening cuts into your deep blue sky. Resting in the shade of the symbol tree and looking at the sky reflected in a large water mirror is a unique attraction,” on the Not A Hotel website.
The circular holiday home has been designed on the vast grounds with no front and back facade to be able to offer uninterrupted views of its surroundings.
The project’s website stated that “the architecture, which has a vague boundary between the interior and the exterior and is connected to the land, is equipped with a living-dining room with sea view and four separate bedrooms that can accommodate up to 10 people.”
“Get together with friends, enjoy the quiet beach, enjoy a barbecue in the garden, have a drink in the living room, and head into every room.”
Inside the house, the architect suggested an open living and dining room wrapped in glass, and the living room features a flexible island kitchen overlooking the sea making guests want to cater to a house party.
Another great feature of the house is the 12m swimming pool and a fireplace on the adjoining terrace. An outdoor hammam and a sauna are also provided for guests with panoramic sea views during their stay.
On the terrace, the 12-meter infinity pool is designed to seamlessly connect with the sea in front of the guests. “After a short swim, sit on a chair and take a rest in the shade of the island plants,” the project website states.
“After the break, go back to the next living room and slowly enjoy your meal.”
The project is in the conceptual stage and is scheduled for construction in the summer of 2023.
Large openings and porous elements are common features of Sou Fujimoto projects. Fujimoto music house One great example of these design features.
The House of Music, which was completed earlier this year, is a music museum in a pastoral setting in Budapest’s largest park by Lake Varosliget, near Heroes’ Square, Hungary.
