This place is just amazing. Have I said that before on this site? surely not.
it seems as though through the restriction in space and the high density population the amazing current Japanese architects, are become a form of ‘zen master’ of minimal form and clean non clinical warmth.
Having a tree encompassed by the house (which includes smoked glass no less) is one of those dream boat things that you hope and prey that by some fortune you can install into your house, even if it is only on a window in a door between the garage and the street.
The rest of Shinichi & friends work is equally amazing, but lets not forget the fact that some terribly talented builders and his team with amazing attention to detail have work from the plan to create this building and give us a glimpse of what minimal heaven may look like if we are sent there after reading or watching too much grand designs.
Going to be planting a tree in our living room as soon as Mrs Panda agrees
