Building Considerations

Hakuba is a pristine destination renowned for its natural beauty and snowfall with around 8 metres of snow falling annually. When designing and building a home in such an Alpine environment, it is important to take into consideration the effect these conditions will have on your property.
This may seem straightforward and knowledge you would expect from your architect and builder. Do note that warm weather architects may overlook some of these important considerations. For this reason, some Hakuba builders are wary of working with Tokyo architects who may not fully comprehend the requirements of building in an alpine environment.
