| CONCEPT

Jiyugaoka is a city where various unique spots exist. Because the living space is one of the attractive spots in this city, we tried to make it more varied and interesting.
The spatial composition is a complex stack of 12 different types of flats in a systematic plan. The core part was consolidated and the shared part was minimized. As an expression, the outer wall of the core is made of Corten steel to give a design accent. The H-shaped RC columns placed in the core also bear the lateral force, making it possible to create a floor that is free and open to the frontage by making the other flat columns.
Many flats have a three-dimensional spread by maisonettes, each with its own personality. Increasing such a unique stock will contribute to the attractiveness of the city.
