Outline

To escape from the modern redevelopment area around Shirokane-Takanawa station, this apartment is located in older residential area in a back alley. Because new and old buildings are mixed, If you walk from the station you find scenery changes abruptly. That gives you a feeling of pressure and intensity. We wanted this to be the one which relieves those feelings. With setting up a pagora and some benches at the entrance of this apartment, we hope this “Tamari“ (means the place where people get together) not only welcomes people warmly but also plays a role as a buffer between new and old.
