This is an apartment which has 9 rental dwelling units and an owner's unit, located in urban center. The site is at the corner lot surrounded with a curved street and sloping street. From the site, I realized that we can see the nice long distant view along the curved street and impressive tall trees in the neighbors. And also some neighbor's windows are facing towards this site, and so on. I believe that we architects have to design the buildings not only for the client but also for surroundings. I tried to design making good relationship with surroundings. As a result, the wall and roof of the building became zigzagged shape like japanese byobu, and the windows and balconiy's size became various and that gives residents and surroundings the lively and comfortable view.
