This villa project is on the Kamakurayama from which the spectacular Pacific Ocean can be overlooked. The master is a manager of an overseas investment bank and he wished to own a weekend villa with his wifes studio.

If you go down the gracile approach looking over the ocean parallel, the entrance appears. The private court can be seen from the wifes studio where she dedicates to her creative work at the side of the entrance hall.

The master bedroom with a glazed ensuite features hotel-style space and abundant green can be appreciated from its windows.

The second floor wholly lays ample space as a family room to interact with their guests. The peculiar pentagon shape of the huge timber roof sets no pillar to support. The panoramic Pacific Ocean view spreads infinitely below the balcony with fully-sliding sashes. This weekend villa on the hill would heal their busy daily life.
