“The Flower Apartment complex (for single-couples) is located in Tsudanuma, Chiba, Japan. Tsudanuma is a University town and a bedroom community of Tokyo.

The actual site is on a 390 m2 plot of land on the south side of the district, located next to flower gardens and fruit orchards in a very peaceful setting. Each unit has the entrance hall in the courtyard - the “center of the flower”-of the apartment.

There are six “L-Shaped” units that form the petals of the flowers, and provide the building with its basic massing. In addition, there are two 3-story mezzanine units on the north side of the building whose additional floor provides the required sunlight.

Each unit is approximately 30 m2. To emphasize the petals of the massing, a deck terrace has been added that stretches between the units that expands the interior to the exterior.

The apartment windows are oriented in such a way that they selectively edit the views of the surrounding suburban landscape highlighting the rural aspects of the site.” *collaboration with bews
