Discipline: Architecture

This mixed use building (office and residential) is a townhouse-style condominium featuring four low-volume three-story houses to be constructed at a midtown location in Tokyo, surrounded by larger-volume buildings. The simple rectangular plan and complex 3D-construction technique creates an interesting interplay of privacy and visual accessibility, both between the three buildings and towards the street. A common green space connects the buildings while also maintaining distance from each other. This ensemble was designed to provide three separate spaces that also interact seamlessly.

This apartment breaks down the urban scale with an internal courtyard and landscape. The use of materials and details, especially of the facade and roof, is simple and just beautiful. This mixed use house with a private garden connects the public and the private very well! Such an elegant and contemporary eye-catching terrace apartment!
