Yoshino-sugi Cedar House (2016) by Go Hasegawa, located in Tokyo | The Hardt
Yoshino-sugi Cedar House (2016) by Go Hasegawa, located in Tokyo, Japan. Leading the world in the community-driven hospitality business, Airbnb is creating a new narrative with Nara Prefecture’s Yoshino town through HOUSE VISION. Using Yoshino cedar, the architect Go Hasegawa designed a house that aims to build new relationships with the area, as the community acts as the host. The first floor of this house is opened up to the townspeople as a community space—for free use. Mothers can let children play while enjoying a chat, and the elderly can stop by on their walk for a cup of tea.
