Modern and traditional Japanese aesthetic ideas into starkly contemporary buildings while maintaining the original characteristics of traditional Japanese architecture named Y Residence in Japan. The private residence is located on a hill with a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. As a beautiful and modern residential architecture in Japan Y Residence determined to bring the charm of the ocean view and integrate it into the residence as much as possible. Hirotaka Kidosaki, the principal of Kidosaki Architects Studio was born in Japan in 1942, he studied architecture at Nihon University, Japan and holds a Master�s degree from the University of Sheffield. From 1979 to 1993 Kidosaki acted as Vice-President at Kenzo Tange Associates. Kenzo Tange is the best-known Japanese architect, whose National Gymnasiums for the Tokyo Olympics emphasized the contrast and blending of pillars and walls, and with sweeping roofs reminiscent of the tomoe (an ancient whorl-shaped heraldic symbol) are dramatic statements of form and movement in architecture. In 1993 Kidosaki joined Architect 5 Partnership an established partnership-based architectural design office by Junichi Kawamura, Hidetsugu Horikoshi, and Takeo Matsuoka, to only establish Kidosaki Architects Studio in 2000.
