From the architect. It is a residence and atelier for a couple in the center of Tokyo.

Floor like bookshelf plates are placed at the different level in the shifted box. Furniture is put on the each floor to create living room, dining room, kitchen and bedroom. Each plate-like-floors are only hooked by columns which are three-dimensionally intersected at the middle of the box and this simple structure gives latitude for space composition.

In massive volume of the box, each different activity of daily living is took place at each floor with open view. Lightings hung from top of the box till the each floors to illuminate them such as a floating stage.  A small residence like big furniture showcases the living on the stage.

I think projects like this are conceptual relevant and interesting to realize. However in this case the house looks more like an art project then an actually sophisticated piece of concepthouse.

Stepped away from the impressing wide-angle shots the spatial quality isn't visible and interesting relations seems to be missing. The void on itself isn't new anymore, even in a generic system.

This house is bad taste joke: unconfortable and dangerous. Moving up and down durig all the day is difficult and tired. The architect might think people who live in this house are dolls, not human.

Wyfallu · August 17, 2012 05:44 PM

It'd be horror to live in. And if owners get old they won't be happy to take all those stairs. Utility of this piece of architecture is low.

Álvaro Díaz · August 16, 2012

I love this house. Sober and elegant, it is everything and everything is done. fresh, simple and original.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR STUNNING SITE. THE BEST
