Yokohama Apartment by ON Design Partners


Joint living groups present attractive options for creative individuals to share ideas, collaborate on

projects, and thrive in a productive environment. ON Design Partners explores this module in their

design for a cluster of four single-unit apartments in Yokohama. The private living spaces for the

individual apartments are lofted in the sky, each one accessible through an exterior staircase that

wraps around a triangular column. These four columns serve as storage space, structural entities,

as well as figures to demarcate the semi-enclosed courtyard shared by all four residents as an

exhibition area. The physical relationship between private and public integrate the entire complex

into the urban fabric and encourage circulation underneath the belly of the building.
