Kentaro Ataka is an architectural firm located in Japan, and the team has recently finished completions on the Hasu House. The design is filled with apartment units, however, the company did not go with a traditional look for these condos.
The units are shaped like tunnels, with floor-to-ceiling windows at the front and ample amounts of natural light to shine through. Since the area is situated in such a densely populated area of Japan, the firm had to make the most of the small space that they had. As such, the complex is compact, but not overly cramped, and the building comes complete with eight units. For such a small space, Kentaro Ataka has done a great job with what they have.
