This a three-floor, reinforced concrete housing complex with 19 units, located along the Keisei line, and a five-minute walk from Keisei-Takasago Station in Katsushika ward.
When taking an outbound train on the Keisei line, go past Aoto, cross the Nakagawa River, and you’ll see it on the right-hand side.
Enter the Takasago area, and you’ll see this building right away.
However, we thought the reverse concept, “See this building, and you’ll know you’re in Takasago,” would make for a better design.
The man facade is on the west side, with the most visibility from the trains, and consists of a square-block type, undressed concrete, and a rhythm of columns to hide the AC outdoor units.
The window surface wall which inside the balcony have vertical borders using five colors of rectangular tiles, to create the image of a woven fabric.
