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.

japanese modern architecture is related very much with zen minimalism

this is japanese architecture. It has its own values and principles. I dont understand it very well so its better not to make any opinion. Try looking for the Japanese Park Biblioteque in Medellin because it has the same architectural values in it.

I like the design in general. But it desperately need some soft surface (wood,drywall) in interior. It must be dreadful to live inside such cold space. It looks like the only way you can personalize your own home is grafiti.

it's the spatial proportions and the inadequate use of lighting that makes it feel like a prison. Ando's concrete use works because of the proportions and the use of timber appropriately softens it.

The interiors are hostile and austere, but externally I find it rather appealing. It is certainly a photogenic piece.

Alex · August 03, 2011

The roof with it's sophisticated steel handrails simply hugged the evening sky above it.

n · August 03, 2011

the composition is quite photogenic and lovable, and so are the terraces and outdoor spaces.
but i have to agree on the interiors - though i usually don't hold anything against concrete finishes, they just don't do these spaces justice...

Tom Kubala · August 03, 2011

Not caring about skeptical people produces the kind of place where one goes to die, not to live. Life has been abstracted out of this place.

Miso Vrsansky · August 03, 2011

its fantastic, who cares about sceptical people

This is horrible. Architects always wonder why many people are skeptical and reluctant towards concrete use. Boom. Here's why. Looks like a jail from a 1970s psycho-sci-fi film.
