On the cherry blossom

January 21st, 2011

This house in Tokyo is called “On the cherry blossom”, and that is its biggest downside. It was designed by A.L.X. and it’s on my “buildings to visit when I ever get to Tokyo” list.

    It’s a very cool look, but it seems strange that it has only two street-facing windows and (possibly) only two windows total.

    I think a lot of people would love to see your “buildings to visit when I ever get to Tokyo” list.
    I know I would :)

    What an amazing use of a beautiful street feature. Looks like the entire building (including the interior) was designed around the best view of the tree and ignores every other suburban detail. Probably why there is limited outlook.

    Nice design, reminds me to similar designed houses in Stuttgard at the Weißenhofsiedlung.

    This house is handsome ! It would be nice if there was a garden on the cleared ground level, instead of plain concrete on each side… @ Nick Husher : There’s opeanable white panels in the two “branch” rooms, it looks like shading devices…
