The Odin House is a truly dramatic alpine residence. Perched on the upper portion of a steep piece of forest land, it faces the renowned Mt. Yotei, widely regarded as the “Mt. Fuji of Hokkaido”, the active volcano that towers 1,898 m over the Niseko Plateau. Located in the lower village of Niseko, Hirafu, the ‘L-shaped’ residence was conceived with big ambitions of world-class architecture and dramatic living spaces.Epitomized by its huge curved floating roof, Odin is a visual and emotional feast. Meticulous planning went into exploiting the natural features and views of the land, guiding the house’s position, orientation, elevations, and shaping of views. As an intimate private residence, a great deal of time was spent on interior design, personalised decoration and premium facilities, including spa, gym, staff quarters and a personal elevator.
