With an arching, cliff-like shell, the Artechnic Architects Breeze project is meant to make you feel like you are enclosed in your own private beach.

The sculptural walls block out sounds and sights from the busy street, while still letting air and light flow freely through the partitions. Located in the heart of Tokyo, this structure is a stark contrast to the rest of the architecture in the bustling city. Within the protective shelter, a surprising oasis can be found, full of light and space with soaring staircases and windows overlooking the gardens in the back.

At night, lights illuminate the bottom of the Artechnic Architects Breeze structure, enhancing the unique curvature of its enclosing walls. Stats for Sleek Shell-Encased Structures Trending: Older & Chilly
