ISSO Architects is in collaboration with Hirofumi Ohno to complete this residential project. Finished in 2006, Fudomae Apartment has a design that makes the most of its limited volume. The result of the design is a comfortable urban living space that connects a lifestyle and natural environment.
This apartment becomes a comfortable urban living space with its comfortable units. Each 18 sqm unit contains storage, bathroom, kitchen, and also living room. The tight arrangement of this apartment is transformed into a design expression that is simple and elegant.
The architect transforms this apartment tight arrangement into a design expression through the window shape and location. The apartment window designates the placement of the furniture and the bed, offering more remaining space to move.
The height and angle of the window are perfect for the room interior and the scenery outside the apartment. This window also can connect the Japanese single lifestyle and the natural environment, creating a balance between life and the site of life.
