Flatiron buildings have always held an architectural appeal because of their stunning details, rarity and historical presence; the On The Corner design takes all of these components into account while putting a completely contemporary spin on them.

Designed by EASTERN Design Office, the On The Corner building is located in Shiga, Japan. Aside from its sharp, triangular shape, this design is so modern, it introduces older flatiron architectural designs to a facelift that they can be proud of. The surface boasts mismatched windows that let in a lot of natural light into the building. The stark white exterior alludes to the minimalist movement that has had a huge impact on modern society. Overall, On The Corner is a stunning structure.
