Concept Design Completed: Griffin House in Niseko

A Ski Villa in Niseko, Hokkaido, Japan


New images for the concept design of Griffin House in Niseko, Hokkaido, Japan, are up on our webpage!

The floor plan for Griffin House was inherited and revised slightly to achieve
certain requirements for the functionality of the layout. Given these constraints
STE-AD proposed a concept of folded planes, similar to origami, to achieve
the desired aesthetic.
