In the tradition of great iconic homes, Setsugen is a landmark in Hirafu village. The design challenge for Setsugen was to create a large six bedroom private home along classic traditional alpine lines, yet incorporate a sophisticated modern design perspective.

The broad monopitch roof allows us to realize a modern alpine feeling yet also provides functionality by assisting in snow management.

Setsugen features 20ft tall cedar lined ceilings, a natural stone fireplace, quartz counters, custom alder millwork, in-floor heating throughout, custom bathrooms and a TV room in the basement for the family to relax in at the end of the day.

Despite being one of the largest private homes in the community, Setsugen blends seamlessly into its natural surroundings.
