The Kamakura Path connects the community center located on the west and public area of the cape, to the private artist cabins located on the east. This path is completely open, relying on stilts and trusses for support, allowing for a gentle interaction with the mountain.

Brick openings are oriented towards the ground entries in order to optimize the amount of light coming in. The smaller openings are closer to the light letting less light in, while the larger openings are further away from the "attractor point" shown above, allowing for more light to come in where it is needed

In order to maintain a private entrance for artists, the path also has an underground entrance leading to the cabins. To lower the disruption into the cape, the private artist path is narrow a minimalist.

In order to reduce intervention on the natural scape of Cape Kamakura, stilts and trusses are used to keep the structure floating above the hill rather than embedded within it.
