House in Tokyo with balconies by KINO Architects
Architect : Masahiro Kinoshita / KINO architects location : Tokyo, Japan
Principal use : private residence
The balcony feature from the top floor is repeated on each floor; internal space is enhanced with outside balcony space. It is too difficult to provide a garden in the super-high density Tokyo environment; also balconies are not included in the calculation of building volume. Therefore many balconies were used to produce an urban garden.
