日本,加号住宅/Mount Fuji事务所

这座优美而棱角分明的别墅看起来雄伟而迷人,纹理的触感、浪漫的光线舞动、对自然之美的崇敬,都一一体现在其上。它唤起了人们对地中海克里特岛一座山上的无数回忆,山上白色的古教堂废墟紧紧攀附在悬崖上。但这些遗址位于一座完全不同的新岛上。

“加号”住宅的两栋主体部分呈90度角,似乎自上而下形成了一个几近完整的十字架或加号。这座豪华的周末度假别墅坐落于日本本州岛静冈县一个广受欢迎的知名温泉地区,在半山腰向外伸出。

设计出这种惊人之美的建筑师是一对夫妻档,丈夫原田真宏(36)和妻子原田麻鱼(33),他们在2004年创建了富士山建筑师工作室。夫妻俩都是登山爱好者,所以将他们的公司以同样位于静冈县的日本最高、也最受人尊敬的山命名。

“加号”住宅展示了他们大胆而毫不浮夸的设计才能,不但从细微之处联系周围的自然环境,也从未放弃凸显建筑的个性与存在感。

这座看上去简单的两层混凝土结构俯瞰着太平洋,在底层是几间私人房间和浴室,楼上是客厅和厨房。卧室和浴室的用水都直接从天然温泉引入。室外完全用白色水抛光大理石覆面,水平纹理向着砖块的外缘方向从粗糙质地渐变为光滑的镜面。室内也用白色大理石装饰,不但反射出南侧海洋的碧蓝,也反射出了西侧森林的青翠。——Tuija Seipell


A tactile sense of texture, a romantic play of light, and a reverence of natural beauty are all evident in this graceful, angular villa that seems monumental yet inviting. It brings up memories of hikes up a mountain on Crete where the white ruins of an ancient chapel cling onto the cliffs. But these ruins are on an entirely different island and they are brand new.

The architects of this stunning beauty are husband and wife, Masahiro (36) and Mao (33) Harada, who founded Mount Fuji Architects Studio in 2004. Both are avid mountaineers — so much so that they named their company after the country’s highest and most admired mountain, also located in the Shizuoka Prefecture.

Plus House shows off their talents at being bold but not grandiose, and at involving the surrounding nature in delicate detail but without giving up the individuality and presence of the building.

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the deceptively simple two-level concrete structure has private rooms and a bath on the lower level, and salon and kitchen on the upper. The water for the bedrooms and bath comes directly from a natural hot spring. The exterior is clad entirely in white water-polished marble with surface texture changing gradually toward the outer tips of the blocks from rough to mirror-smooth. The interior is also covered in white marble that reflects the blue light from the south (ocean) and green light from the west (forest). - Tuija Seipell
