A signature standard for Niseko architecture.
This highly unique glass, steel and timber home is nestled into a canopy of mature woodland. This property has been published in many Japanese architectural magazines and was voted one of Japan's top 200 homes in 2009.
Designed by Hikohito Konishi, recipient of the prestigious international Barbara Cappochin Prize 2009 in Italy, ‘The Glass House’ is a brilliantly elegant reflection of the surrounding nature.
Maximising protected views through aspect and angles, panoramic windows open to Mount Youtei and the grace of Niseko’s main river winding through the countryside to the south.
Constructed by Hokkaido building company, Sudo Construction, the home is built to endure Niseko’s varied climate, bringing joy for many years to come.
Situated on a very generous l,511.4m2 section, the home features three generous bedrooms; three bathrooms; a spacious kitchen leading through to open plan living and dining areas; and a double garage, designed to fit seamlessly together. There is provision for a fourth bedroom on the second level, with a bathroom already in place.
