Kauhiko Kishimoto

Floating house

Located in Yokohama, Japan, is a residence named ‘Beyond the Hill’. The owner hired architect Kazuhiko Kishimoto to design the house with a gallery, but not just a small enclosed one. Kishimoto was to design the house to include a gallery open to the community. To do this he designed the house to ‘float’, with the only grounded room being the open gallery.

The use of wood decking here is fantastic, and is mirrored by the roof of the outside gallery. The uneven flooring allows for plenty of seating, which is good, as the owner organises and runs cooking classes in the kitchen.

The open flooring is beautiful paired with the windows, which provides amazing patterns which alter throughout the day as the sun filters in.
