Architects: Jo Nagasaka + Schemata Architecture Office

63.02º, built in a densely residential area in Nakano, Tokyo, is a small building of a SOHO and an apartment for rent. The front road is really narrow, but the next apartment has a big open space between the road and the building. In order to this situation, the facade of 63.02° is inclined 63.02 degrees toward the front road, so that a wide and deep view is acquired. From the large windows that are opened on the inclined facade, you can see neighbor’s cherry tree and the cityscape.

    I enjoy the design and creative effort of this fancy doll house/ gerbil cage. Not at all a pleasing space for a human being to live in. The cherry blossom is a nice touch. :-)

    very conceptual, very ascetic. laconic, but perfect form. Apartment for rent… mhmm.. in Japan-maybe :) but like small office-I’ll like to have such

  • Rick

    I’d like to see the face of the architects if the neighbours take down the cherry tree :D


    просто невьебенно, архитектор мужик! nice nice nice form.

    I’d love to see what it’s like to live in buildings like this. The cold white lighting and blank walls would definitely affect your emotions in the space. I don’t know how I’d react, but I’ve always loved to simplify my life, and get rid of clutter.

    I love these Japanese houses.. I meen “let’s turn it 63º” No, not good enough; 63.02º, yes, much better….. :)

    “pleasant” – maybe not but that is not what this is about.. I completely admire the client who dicied the only beauty should be the white cherry flowers for a short while each year.. That is aesthetic

    And I would not hecitate to rent the room:)

    If you wanna live with loneliness, go to this house definitely…

    is it just me or does the house look like the really shy kid hiding in the corner? The blank white walls facing the street are like a protective shield and the windows look away as if its embarrassed.

    very good house design. very nice and conceptual arch.forms. very laconic and philosophical. I’d like to have such house as my offic or studio; maybe… maybe.. and like living house in Japan :-).

    It’s like Ando’s work.
