The Plus house is located on the mountain-side of Izu-san, Japan, with views over the Pacific Ocean. Perched in a pocket of untouched coastal wilderness, the residence was designed with the weekend escape in mind, with simple living spaces at the core of the design. In order to navigate the difficult terrain, two intersecting rectangular spaces are positioned at right angles to each other, like an off-centered cross balanced carefully on a narrow ridge. The lower frame contains private quarters while the upper consists of breezy living and social areas that boast wide vistas of the ocean and surrounding forest.
