The unique estuarine setting of Okura inspired the plan and spatial geometry of the house. The concrete structure of the house mirrors the cascading landscapes, with elongated rectangular volumes stretched along the site, providing visual connections to the Okura estuary and the reserve across the water.
Overlapping linear roof planes mimic the moment where the tide meets the stream. This notion is continued to the ground level with cascading platforms that sculpt the swimming pool and the outdoor courtyard spaces.

The horizontal nature of the house reflects its intent to embrace the landscape while different geometric elements interplay to form a cohesive, yet distinct aesthetics for both inside and outside of the house.
