Zekkei

The site commands unobstructed views of Mt. Yotei to the west and picturesque rice valleys below. With the long axis facing the views, the design was conceived as a layered composition of architectural walls to guide movement, create spectacular living spaces and reveal unexpected discoveries.

To articulate the design concept, an earth tone exterior material palette was selected to include natural materials including cedar cladding, cultured stone and stone paved entry.

Inside, natural maple floors, cedar ceilings and solid alder custom stained millwork contrast warmly against a modern kitchen created for entertaining families and friends. The sculptural quality of the architecture is further enhanced by the home’s unique marble fireplace and entertainment center.
