A Concrete House Surrounded By Emerald Waters

Words

Located on the shores of Yoron Island, a Japanese island which was created from elevated coral reefs, the house designed by Case-Real is a solid concrete structure with a delightedly sublime interior.

Completed this year, the house sits in the Southernmost point in Kagoshima prefecture, surrounded by astonishing emerald oceanic waters. The natural conditions were at the very center of the brief as the house was designed not only to expose the breathtaking view, but also to protect the owners from the strong winds the area is known for. By installing mesh-like fixtures to the roof, the architects created a buffer zone that secures the safety of the interior from objects flying during the hurricanes. The mesh fixtures were inspired by a traditional Okinawa construction material called the “Flower Block”.
