Gallery: Clever Farm House With an Elevated Yard Reconnects With Nature

 
The upstairs story contains the kitchen, living room and dining area.

Gravel paths and roads abound at this Japanese farm, and the family has 8 large industrial vehicles parked outside the house. Beyond the gravel park lot are beautiful fields and woodlands, which would be easily visible from inside the house — if you could see past the vehicles that is. The solution to the unsightly view was to block the machines completely with a yard – raised a whole story off the ground. A new second story yard was thus designed, creating a green roof and shading the vehicles parked below while completely blocking them from view.
