The stunning Akasaka-Fukuoka apartment by Hiroyuki Miyabe was designed with the goal of exposing each of the units in the building to a maximum amount of sunlight, fresh air and an obstructed balcony view. The diamond shape of the building is the design that the architects selected to be best for serving all three of those needs for the greatest amount of people.
The cold concrete exterior of the Akasaka-Fukuoka apartment is contrasted with the warm wood interior of the condo units; wood floors and some strategically used wood paneling in the units makes the space feel very homey. When combined with the natural light and ventilation, the Akasaka-Fukuoka apartment succeeds at connecting urbanities to the natural environment.
