Setoyama is a villa built on a vast, vertically long site along the river on a cliff on a hill overlooking the sea.
The studio has attempted to avoid modifying the land itself or touch the boundaries of the forest; while doing building a certain distance from the natural territory, the villa lightly blended into the surrounding environment so that it would be buried in the forest.
Architect: Moriya and Partners
