Robert Harvey Oshartz Architect | The Miyasaka Residence
Wanna have such as a perfect and extraordinary residence like this one..?? Yeah, Everbody will love to live in this beautiful and unique residence that was designed for Miyasaka Family by Robert Harvey Oshartz Architect. This residence was constructed in Obihiro, Japan in 1995-96 and was completed in 1998.
The Miyasaka Residence bridges the aesthetics of two disparate cultures, emblematic of neither, yet summoning echoes of both. Built to accommodate the busy lifestyle of the president of one of Obihiro's major commercial building contractors, as well provide a place of repose for his parents, the house was conceived to appear as a radiant jewel in the midst of an urban garden oasis.
