NE Apartment

Architect:  Yuji Nakae / Nakae Architects + Akiyoshi Takagi / Akiyoshi Takagi Architects + Hirofumi

Location: Tokyo, Japan

Year built: ??

A gracefully sweeping void is carved out of this small apartment complex to create a private entrance courtyard. Glazing is arranged in continuous strips to accentuate these curves. This 8-unit rental apartment house complex was designed to house motorcycle enthusiasts, with a built-in garage included in every unit. The building is located on a flag-shaped plot near the apex of a triangular block, with a certain degree of open space toward the main road to the south.

The c-shaped design was a practical decision to allow the residents to access their apartments through a common alley that leads right to the center of the complex. The wall on the entrance side was curved to provide maximum space on the outside, while guaranteeing sufficient volume for each apartment unit and wall length to fit 8 entrance doors.
