From the architect. It is nine apartment complexes in the suburbs. We try to find its independent appearance in such vague scenery peculiar to the suburbs. The building is planned at an angle of 45 degrees to surrounding and the surface of the building is uneven.

It prevents eyes from the neighborhood and secures the length of the bearing walls. Also, void space and interior space exists alternatively in a house and it makes the space look wider.
