The Cylinder House

This house is located in a quiet residential area within central Tokyo, showcasing a dynamic presence with an impressive white cylindrical outer wall extending through the house.
With 3 levels and 1 underground level, the house utilizes the height difference of the property to the maximum. The basement is a built-in garage for 4 cars, the first and second floors are living zones, and on the third floor are a bathroom area and a rooftop terrace, suggesting a life where the owner can enjoy the night view unique to the city center. It is a design that creates a comfortable yet extraordinary space.
