sunbrella house

ome is a rural town located outside of tokyo, japan, where japanese firm ikeda yukie architects has recently completed
'sunbrella house'. the structure is situated on a slopping hill with views of mountains to the south and a preserved forest to the north and east. 
taking into consideration the surrounding landscape the form has no sharp edges and all corners have been rounded to mimic the topography.
the open space concept allows for radial circulation and uninterrupted views of the neighborhood and bordering countryside.
