Tree Shaped concept
This unusual looking home comes from Mount Fuji Architects Studio and is located in Tokyo, Japan. It was built for a couple in a residential area of the city, even though the architecture manages to separate the project from its urban environment. A first noticeable particularity is the fact that the ceiling is not leveled. One step inside and one can see the reason behind this unique design. Right in the middle of the home there is a giant cylinder resembling a tree stem. Towards the ceiling, this structure begins to fade out turning into a spiral shape, which explains the form of the interesting looking ceiling. The interiors are based on the “Cartesian coordinates system” and have well defined geometrical features. We think the window that the column forms at the beginning of its “transformation” looks highly original, from inside as well as from an exterior angle.
