The site is located at a prominent location facing beautiful river and Kokura Castle and Jun Sakaguchi designed a sculptural tower which shape derives from a flower famous in this region. Petal-like shape maximizes views for each apartment and provides natural ventilation. Bottom levels of the tower spreads out to the ground with its organic form.
The tower became a symbol of this region and is giving the residents the best environment to live in Kokura. All apartments were sold before the completion of construction at prices 30% higher than the average price in this area.
