This is an apartment in a residential area.


Dividing the building into two volumes by the strong regulations of height is the solution.

To create a square where residents will gather and have a joy,one of the volume slanted by 15 degrees.


The square surrounded by the diagonal volumes is centripetal space.

Corridors which are conceived as roji are placed around the agora.

Above the agora, there are bridges which connects two volumes.


This is an attempt to create a vigorous square by multi-level crossing of it and paths(rojis).
