GUESTHOUSE P/k located in the most prestigious area of Karuizawa. The lush greenery site irregularly shaped of 2500m² is slightly inclined along a river by 4m from a public road down to the riverside edge. Among the beautiful nature, inconspicuous artifacts would rather be preferred, so that the building was designed to utilise the land's level difference to appear a single storeyed, and partially where necessary extended to its downstairs still on the ground. The sense of communion with nature is, in each room, achieved through a diverse yet consistent designs for highly sophisticated details, whose affinity lies in the tension toward an architecture open to the landscape. A series of corten steel wall, wrapping around the site, is deliberately designed as a piece of architecture. It serves not only for protecting the privacy inside, but for intermediating between inside and outside the perimeter through various shaped slits barely noticeable from both sides.
GUESTHOUSE P/k 位於輕井澤最負盛名的地區。其基地 2,500 平方公尺的不規則綠地從公路延伸到河邊的四公尺處沿河流略微傾斜，該設計利用土地的高低差將兩層樓的建築融入地景，使其呈現單層的外觀，保留周遭美景最自然的樣貌。這座山莊尋求的是與周圍環境的和諧對話，通過大面的玻璃牆，可以從不同的角度欣賞它周遭的環境。在每個房間裡與自然的交流感，是透過多樣化且一致，並具有高度複雜細節的設計手法來表現的，其與自然的親密感在於面向景觀的建築張力。一旁圍繞場地的耐候鋼牆被刻意設計成一項建築作品，它不僅用於保護內部隱私，還通過各種形狀的狹縫在周邊環境之間進行調和，不管是從牆內或牆外的角度看來都是不惹人注目的存在。
