Kitsuki House: A Wooden Building in A Pristine Site with A Moving Wall

Designed by Takao Shiotsuka Atelier, Kitsuki House stands in a residential area by the sea. The client and his wife choose the site of this property in search of the sun and sea in Kyushu, Japan. He loves the pristine site and wants to have a house without destroying the site terrain. The shutter is treated as a moving wall by the south facade and it consists of repeating “walls” or “non-wall surfaces”.
