Skim Milk: House in Abiko by fuse-atelier

Fuse-atelier is at it again with a beautiful new project — House in Abiko — located in Abiko, Japan. The 80-square-meter residence is a concrete monolith, a request made by the clients themselves. The building sits on a soft foundation that required the use of stakes to support the concrete structure.

There is a large, square opening on the upper floor, which houses the living and dining rooms. The extrusion is not only aesthetic, but limits what outsiders can see. The angles and composition of the architecture seemingly creates both a disconnect and continuation within the space.
