Year: Completed in 2008

Built in Mr. Ando’s signature style, this building incorporates sweeping views of the sea and bay area with sculptural spaces. Set in a large estate the building occupies the highest point in the site retaining most of natural landscape and vegetation. 

Designed for a married couple, the three-story house incorporates a glazed study for the husband and an artist’s studio for his wife. Natural light floods into the ground floor studio though a two story window - divided into four by a large steel cross. The glazed study is located on the first floor and is accessed via a meandering staircase which wraps around this room. Outdoor terraces also step between the ground and first floors, while an infinity pool projects over the living room roof. Furniture throughout the house is monochromatic, including a teak and cardboard table designed by Shigeru Ban.
