This apartment is located in the site next to “Forests of Grids”.
YDS intends to make these two buildings blend in the existing city.The design of the overhung design that is one of the typical images of “Forests of Grids” provides common image between the two buildings.
Trees under the overhung volume enfolded by the building expresses symbiosis between nature and architecture.
The whole volume is made up by the two boxes shifted each other and piled up.These two housing would make a new scenery in this site, and it would activate the city.
