Apartment in Katayama

April 21st, 2010

This apartment building designed by Mitsutomo Matsunami looks stunning! The fact that the houses next doors only have 2 floors, makes this 7 story high building even more majestic. It’s build on a 110.55m² piece of land and has a total floor of 341.38m². There are 10 apartments in the building, measuring between 23.2m² and 35.7m², which is tiny compared to European ones.

    Gorgeous. If you’re going to describe this as hideous you’d should probably explain why.

    I would only say it looks awful because it’s completely disregarding it’s surroundings. I’m sure the neighbor that gets no sunlight anymore is slightly peeved. Also, the beauty of it has to take in the context of the area. Sure it looks nice, but it sticks ou like a sore thumb from it’s neighbors

    Sometimes you need to weed out the old to bring in the new. The natural selection of buildings can start with this tall monument.
