Rental Space Tower is an innovative architectural vision and idea, created by Daito Trust Construction as part of a collaboration with Sou Fujimoto, that is designed to function as a shared rental housing solution that places a higher priority of shared spaces while bringing down the size of private areas such as bedrooms for example.

This architectural design is unique in that it maximizes the size and space associated with the kitchen, garden and library facilities.

Rental Space Tower is truly an innovative residential building design not just because of the manner in which it redistributes space, but the way in which it encourages people to socialize, promoting a sense of community. This kind of arrangement is particularly promising for cities like Tokyo where living space is at a premium, and where people are increasingly lonely due to a work-focused lifestyle that encourages isolation.
