This structure makes use of high spaces and gorgeous views with a vertical design. Though the shape is certainly a stand out design, it fulfills more than appearances.

It was revamped to include the original window wall in order to make more use of the circulation possibilities in the multilevel building. By adding this in, each floor is opened up to natural ventilation, sunlight and incredible views.

The industrial nature is connected by a staircase that runs through the length of the construction.

The different levels all share in the natural lighting that makes full use of the indoor to outdoor connection. The massive window unit also opened up the home’s floor plan, creating more of a strolling feel as opposed to closed off, boxed in floors.

Designed by Sou Fujimoto Architects this multi-floor residence is over the top.

The glass walls are supported by white metal beams which elongates the glass façade. Though completely unusual in a crowded city environment, the interior is laid out so that private zones are nested by inconspicuous walls.

The rooms are not traditional in any sense as they are actually not closed off areas, but open spaces that are contained by a series of platform floors. An inventive design, it provides more area than traditionally laid out houses, and also creates extra storage units in the floor spaces.
