Crescent House

20Jun12

The stunning Crescent House is located in Shizuoka, Japan and naturally named after it’s unique shape. The main entrance is through a glass enclosed staircase on ground level and sliding glass doors offer views of Mt. Fuji in the distance while maintaining privacy from neighbors on either end and back.  The structure was designed by Shigeru Ban Architects and features a cantilevered  roof over two bedrooms, living ,dining, and is supported at it’s greatest depth by a chimney rather than a column.   pb
