Keiji Ashizawa Design has renovated an apartment nestled in a dwelling complex of 36 maisonettes in a quiet residential area of Tokyo.
The project was a collaboration between Keiji Ashizawa and Norm Architects, who share a mutual admiration and love for material richness and timeless appeal in both design traditions.
Featuring a green courtyard with a 100-meter-long passage, the project is a fully interior and exterior labour of love for landscaping and tailor-made furniture.
The apartment's humble and elegant interior design seamlessly combines the shared design values of Japan and Denmark.
This project has been longlisted in the apartment interior category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
