Apartment in Katayama by Mitsutomo Matsunami Architect & Associates (JP)


This seven-storey apartment block in Katayama, Osaka Prefecture was realised by the Umeda-based Mitsutomo Matsunami Architect & Associates. The striking façade of the building reflects ‘the lifestyle inside the apartment itself’ while its monochrome colouring is juxtaposed with ‘dull buildings of beige, grey or brick shades’ that dominate the development’s immediate surroundings.
The building is constructed on an exceptionally small 110 square metre site and comprises of 10 apartments whose ‘room arrangement matches that of the window pattern’. Additionally, the legal height restrictions allowed the architects to create a high-ceiling maisonette within the building.
