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.
This project has been shortlisted in the rural house category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
