Clover House made Katsuhiro Miyamoto & Associates Dig Deep



Clover houses usually follow a pattern where under-ground or excavated dwelling is an important part to give the house its eventual form. This one on view located in Japan made the Katsuhiro Miyamoto & Associates dig deep to excavate a housing land development ground and the existing retaining wall.

This helped them to create double height in the basement. To add to the basement, a flat glass box was layered on the ground in order to accommodate the living spaces. There are also some laterally excavated spaces in this house which gives it the look of Yaodong, a traditional Chinese underground house. Also, there are three loft alcoves on the ground level which are all bedrooms.

It’s a very beautiful and modern house. It has a very nice design, both in terms of exterior design as well as of interior décor. Every room as specific look, a different atmosphere and décor. But what they all share in common is the modern and simple style. It’s nice how all the materials and patterns work together and form a complete and equilibrated image. And all the different colors also work together to form complementary and colorful images.  It’s a beautiful design, modern and elegant and also stylish.

It’s a very interesting house, from an architectural point of view. It’s modern, quite large and would make a great place for a family.
