A beautiful Japanese architecture product has been designed by David Jay Weiner. It is a weekend house with sustainable architecture and special kimono-style design applied, located Rensselaer County, New York, USA, owned by a Japanese. The beauty of  Berkshire Hills creates a good value for this sustainable architecture building.

Kimono-style design means that this sustainable house is conceived as a single volumetric “sheet” enclosure that wraps and folds into itself to form and define two major interior spaces, and tie the house with the landscape. The first interior space is used for living, dining, and cooking activities, while the secondary space is the master bedroom. There is an  extended closed-in porch like aperture, creates a transition between inside and outside. This part analogues to an engawa or “in-between space” found in traditional Japanese architecture.

Glass materials are used in this green building architecture to encourage natural day lighting and maximize the view.  The site was really kept to be untouched to protect the natural landscaping, especially the wild flowers that are dominating the summer time, also to minimize site disturbances. The cost for this eco construction was kept low. The interior is dominated with white color, helps the house to reflect the sun light throughout the whole spaces of the house. This can minimize the energy also.

This green architecture house is very suitable as a weekend retreat supported by its beautiful landscape view and the location which is far from the noise of big city, like New York.
