In Japanese, ‘yuki’ means snow, and ‘kage’ means shadow. Put together, the name of the house Yukikage directly refers to its architectural parti of a three-storey home whose exaggerated ceiling eaves on each floor drops shadows onto the surrounding blanket of snow.
As a result, the horizontal layers of the house’s three storeys are clearly delimited. The wing-like gesture of the eaves gives animation to the architecture, and the soaring language represents the house’s desire to embrace the beautiful, natural environment.
