Franco-Japanese architectural firm Ciel Rouge has completed the Villa Ronde project, a green roofed luxury residence nestled on the Japanese coast.
The open-air circular design of the house helps protect it by deflecting the strong winds that are common in the area while providing natural ventilation and serves to cool the interior.
The Villa Ronde includes a private museum, a guest house and an indoor swimming pool.
