Name: Keyaki Apartment
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Keyaki Apartment is a minimalist home designed by Tokyo-based designers 44tune. The architects decided to create an apartment complex that would mitigate the natural calamities that affect a disaster-prone country. Their ideology was to explore the current state of architecture, and to facilitate the relationship between the city and its people.
As a result, the building shapes the user’s surroundings by inheriting the traditional relationship between the owner, the city, and the new residents, causing the site to flourish in a social context. The building has a unique triangular layout that is coupled with an equally impressive facade.
