From the architect. Constructed solely out of concrete this design by Ikimono Architects serves as a multi-family dwelling. The various openings and closing allow a range of interactions between the residents, and create shifting moments of light.

The design includes a roof top terrace with bamboo gardens, eight separate living units and a minimalist aesthetic with a orthogonal plan.
