Cottage in Tsumari by Future-Scape Architects located within a beech wood park in Tokamachi, Nigata, Japan is a small vacation home that is available for rent by locals and tourists.

This low-cost public cottage is located in a region which receives some of the heaviest snowfall in Japan, often reaching four meters. The structure was intended to be a place where visitors would be refreshed not only by the surrounding nature, but also by the architecture itself.

Derived from the characteristic forms of vernacular architecture, the structure aims to subtly inject itself into the mature context of the area, and the natural environs. Conceived as two combined volumes, the dwelling features an internal composition that is disconnected – physically and programmatically – from the exterior shell.
