The architecture firm Planet Creations has built a cantilever house in concrete over a river in Japan. The home has open spaces and a modern style but is made of materials that echo nature. It has raw wood juxtaposed with solid concrete and minimalist rooms that echo an oasis in the woods. The views are used as a focal point of the house’s indoor space. It hangs 50 feet above a river, jutting out from the rock hillside so as to look as if it is blending back into the hill.
- This striking concrete house extends from a cliff above a river in Japan, providing spectacular views of the surrounding landscape
- The two-floor green-roofed structure, designed by architecture firm Planet Creations, establishes a delicate balance between rugged and warm materials, with raw wood contrasting against stark concrete walls.
- The villa is located in Tenkawa village, and it cantilevers over the Tenokawa River, 56 feet below. It’s built into flat bedrock, and the layout is split along the length of the structure
