Tranquility. Simplicity. Exclusivity.

The Escarpment Estate boasts a collection of arguably the most contemporary modern designs in the Niseko area with straight, sharp and angled design cues. Even amongst such company, ES23 manages to stand out as an unapologetically modern statement. The owners wanted the home to bring them as close to nature as possible along with complexity in simplicity. Hikohito Konishi Architects & Associates out of Sapporo put together the design under instruction to not spare any expense in making it truly special.

ES23 was brought to life in 2015 by Sudo Constructions. The 4 Bedroom, 3 bathroom home spreads itself over a 240 sqm floor area. Whilst the house is quite simple in design, the rich textures of finishing and fittings are anything but, including cor-ten steel both on the inside and outside of the house. The owners’ wishes to be close to nature culminated in 6 meter floor to ceiling windows on both floors to ensure completely unobstructed panoramic views of the ever changing seasonal tapestry in the shadow of Mt Yotei. With the owner being a car buff, a custom fitted garage was built, boasting a double height ceiling to cope with a car lift and custom exhaust systems. A glass curtain wall looking from the garage to the living space features liquid crystal cloud film, allowing the owner to switch between an opaque or transparent wall with a flick.

As Hirafu continues to expand and grow exponentially, the number of sites that remain truly tranquil continue to dwindle. This is where the Escarpment Estates’ exclusivity comes into play and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Tranquility and convenience are more often than not mutually exclusive. However, with the Escarpment Estate, having both is it’s biggest strength. Wake up in the morning to unobstructed magnificent views of Mt. Yotei, then take a short 5 minute drive into the heart of town to spend the day skiing Niseko’s champagne powder or cycling in it’s beauty, depending on the season, enjoying the abundance of good food and drink, a soak in the onsen, and just as easily head back to the peace and quiet of your accommodation.
