LOVE ARCHITECTURE INC. as Architects

In order to create a comfortable public space in contrast to the redevelopment around Tachikawa Station, I left as much open ground as possible, The design takes advantage of the L-shaped lot with roads on two sides by lacing the property with several meandering foot paths that connect to the city streets, turning the site into a public space that anyone can use and seamlessly integrating it with the city. In order to keep the distance between the garden, which is a public space, and each room properly, The exterior walls therefore have many protruding and recessed areas which are intricately interwoven with twelve exterior staircases.
