With a concrete facade and green roof, the Tenkawa Fishing Cabin blends into its riverbank setting. The rectangular structure sits cantilevered over the edge of Japan's sacred Mount Ōmine, where its gray exterior becomes one with the bedrock foundation. Separated by a plywood partition, the interior's linear floor plan consists of a guest bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom on one side, and the master bedroom, living area on the other. Sliding doors at the far end of the home expand the inside out over the river and exposing the mountainous landscape.
