Futago House ("twins" in Japanese) consists of two identical parts. 30,000 tons of soil — and the twin brothers rise above the landscape like concrete observers sharing one heartbeat for two. The construction of the project took 3 years and became a real chain of bold decisions. The location encouraged us to do everything possible to make the view the main highlight of the project. So, we got 30,000 tons of soil and raised both parts of the house to a height of 5 meters. Hence, we got rid of obstacles on the horizon to fully enjoy the landscape.
