The adjacent area is earmarked for a new grove of Japanese plum trees, and their fragrant early spring blossoms will only add to an already beautiful site. Nishizawa used a single roof to incorporate these elements into the pavilion’s design.

Article source: Architect Show Co., Ltd

Located in Fukuoka City Vice city center, this Building is apartments for rent for single people.

Currently, there is no personality in architecture itself rental apartments, it is often thought to be a uniform design.

As opposed to design the architecture design uniform so far, I have the concept that you plan to have a personality in architecture itself, combines livability and design, the “architecture the sole.
