Architect: Studio Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects
Location: Miura peninsula of Kanagawa Prefecture
Year built: 2013
Windows of various shapes and sizes give this weekend retreat on the south-east coast of Japan the appearance of a children’s shape-sorter toy. Designed by Tokyo studio Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects, Nowhere but Sajima forms part of the Nowhere Resort, a series of weekly rentable holiday homes on the Miura peninsula of Kanagawa Prefecture. The house is located on the harbour of a small fishing village. It has a triangular plan, with rooms on three storeys.
Each of the windows lines up with a different room and the ceiling of every room follows the profile of its window. The architects describe the rooms as “thin tube-like spaces” with views directed towards the ocean. “We have created a place reminiscent of looking out to sea from the deck of a ship,” they explain.
