Located on Mount Kamakura, this site boasts a stunning view overlooking Sagami Bay. The clients, a husband-and-wife couple who had been living in a high-rise condominium in downtown Tokyo, fell in love with the location at first sight, taking an instant liking to the view and the lush green surroundings, and decided to move here. The husband is a keen architecture buff who went on architectural tours throughout Europe to see buildings while he was working in the UK, and decided to commission a new residence with an attached workshop for his wife.

The client, who works as a manager of a publishing company, wanted a life surrounded by his favorite books and other objects. He purchased a corner plot in a dense, mature residential area located in an uptown Tokyo neighborhood.
